2013 flood

Special garbage collection

The City will provide a special collection on Saturday, July 13 for waste created by flooding. You will have the option of setting out flood-damaged items on your regular garbage day as well. Please remember to check with your insurance company before setting items out for collection (proof of damage prior to disposal may be needed for reimbursement). If it’s at the curb, the City will collect it.

Bulky items such as couches, mattresses or other furniture do not need to be dismantled. Carpet must be tied in rolls measuring 1.2 metres (4 feet) in length. Smaller items should be placed in garbage bags; no City-issued Bag Tag required. Each bag or roll of carpet cannot weigh more than 20 kg (44 lbs). Please place all flood-damaged material out at the curb by 7 a.m. and leave items out until collected (collection may continue until Monday).

Green Bin collection is not part of the special collection. Place spoiled food items in the Green Bin for pickup on your regular collection day. Any extra green waste can be placed in a clear plastic bag and set out on collection day.
