Curbside Garbage Pickup

Reminder to residents:

  • Heavy bags will not be picked up as bags can tear.
  • Please keep areas where garbage is stored as clean as possible. Garbage cans are preferred as it keeps animals out.

Tree Branches and Bagged Leaves
Tree branches and bagged leaves are generally picked up on Fridays. Please have the branches and bagged leaves put to the curb so Public Works staff can picked them up. If you have a truck or trailer and are able to bring them to the Transfer Site (1 mile east of town on PTH2) there is a large pile for trees and leaves.
