Squamish Curbside Garbage

HOLIDAY CHANGES - Curbside collection days for 2016 will remain as scheduled throughout the Christmas Season, please note that the Stawamus Reserve and the Business Park are being changed from Tuesday collection to Monday collection effective December 12, 2016.

With bi-weekly curb-side garbage and recycling we are significantly reducing the Municipal Greenhouse Gas Emissions with respect to the delivery of the services on the trucking side, encouraging more participation in recycling thereby diverting waste, and overall any reduction in solid waste and any increase in recycling will improve the Municipal Green House Gas (GHG) emissions.

Garbage Totes

All municipal approved dwellings are eligible for bi-weekly pickup of garbage from the curb-side in the 65 Gallon Tote supplied by Carney’s. Please note that lost and damaged garbage totes are replaced at a cost to the homeowner of $180.

All totes/bins are now bear proofed so on collection day you must ensure that you undo the latches on the bear proof tote and attach them to each other. If the latches are not undone, your tote will not be serviced.

Garbage Odour Control

  • Where possible store your garbage tote in a shed, garage or other enclosed structure
  • Double bag smelly garbage
  • Freeze organic material until disposal
  • Add ¼ cup baking soda and ¼ cup of borax to the garbage tote to absorb odours. You can also add a handful of moth balls or use a commercial odour-absorbing product that is usually available at your local hardware store.
  • You can take your food scraps/ organics to Carney’s Recycle Centre or the Squamish Landfill Public Depot for composting.

Note!

  • All garbage must fit into the totes provided and the lids must close completely; no extra material will be collected
  • Larger or extra carts are available for additional fees. Residents who wish to change the size of their totes, or who wish to have additional totes can call Carney’s Waste Systems

Delays in Curbside Residential Collection

Delays of your curbside residential collection may occur due to road closures, construction, or winter snow or icy conditions. Carneys Waste Systems staff will do their best to ensure regular collection schedules are maintained, however, if we are unable to service your totes on your regular collection day, collection will take place on the following day, or as soon as  weather and road conditions allow.

Residents whose tote has not been serviced can put their totes out the following morning or leave the totes out overnight, however, if left out overnight, garbage totes must have the lid secured with the latches to prevent bears from accessing contents. Unlock the latches the following morning.

General Safety: As the waste collection carts are equipped with wheels, please use extra caution when wheeling them in snowy or icy conditions.
