Green Cart Signup

Note: due to the current situation, there will be a delay to the start of the Green Cart Program. Once we have a firm date on when the program will begin we will announce it at that time. In the meantime, we ask that all residents with green carts NOT place their green carts out in the lanes or the front street for pickup. Green bins will be available at the depots beginning Tuesday, April 7th for the public to use.

We would also remind residents that the Eastview Landfill Site will not be opening for summer hours until further notice, therefore the landfill site will only be open from Monday to Saturday 8:00 am to 4:45 pm.



Thank you for interest in this program and as a reminder should you have any yard and/or food waste material you wish to divert from the landfill this material can still be taken to one of the yard waste depots currently situated at the following locations:

  1. 1st Street & Richmond Avenue
  2. 400 Block of Franklin Street
  3. 34th Street & Victoria Avenue
  4. Westridge Community Centre
  5. Brandon’s Community Sportsplex


Note: Please do not place yard waste in your blue lidded recycling cart as this contaminates the load.

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING GREEN BIN DELIVERY TO NEW PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS:The Sanitation Section will deliver green bins to new program participants in the order that the Green Cart Program registrations are received. Once the curbside collection of green bins commences (typically mid to late April), green bins will only be delivered to new program participants during the first week of every month. If you are eager to obtain your green bin and would rather not wait for it to be delivered by City staff, you have the option of picking up your green bin directly from the landfill site during the hours of 8:00 am to 4:45 pm Monday to Friday. When doing so, please utilize the parking lot on the west side of the main building and enter through the south door – the Sanitation administrative assistant will be happy to issue your green bin and record its serial number for our records.
