Waste collection schedule and alerts

New curbside collection program

What's In/What's Out:

Bin sizes

New bins will allow for safer collections and greater efficiency by new automated trucks. The new program includes curbside collection for all Sechelt neighbourhoods for garbage, recycling, food waste and yard waste. Garbage and recycling will be picked up every other week. Food waste and yard waste will be picked up weekly.

Make sure you look inside your new green bin! Each new green bin contains a new calendar, collection route map and information on what goes in each bin.

Be sure to check the calendar to find out if your pick up date has changed.

Positioning your new bins

The new trucks will automatically lift and dump material, so proper positioning of your bins is important! Please:

  1. leave your bins facing the street at the curbside or edge of the road from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. on collection day;
  2. space bins at least 1 metre apart;
  3. unlock the lids to allow for the automated collection.
