How often is garbage collected?

  • Garbage is collected once a week.

Dual stream recycling is here!

Dual stream Recycling is a system where recyclable materials are separated into two streams - Containers and Fibres. Your recyclables - must be separated and placed into, two separate recycling boxes. Containers (Plastics) belong in a Yellow box and Fibre (Paper) belong in a blue box.
