Waste & Recycling

Garbage & Recyling pick up 

EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 1, 2020
ALL GARBAGE PICK-UP IN GLENBORO WILL BE AS FOLLOWS:

TUESDAYS
RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL GARBAGE PICK-UP

WEDNESDAYS
RECYCLING PICK-UP

FRIDAYS

Beginning Friday, April 9th, and continuing until November 2nd, 2021, the Municipality will resume the yard waste and garbage pick-up in Ward 4 (Glenboro) on both Tuesdays and Fridays. Bags must be placed at the curb by 8:00 a.m.

All yard waste must be bagged as this helps to control dust and mold that causes health concerns. It will not be picked up if placed loosely in containers.

Due to extensive provincial regulations, composting is not available at the Waste Transfer Station. All yard waste picked up will be placed in the household garbage bins at the Waste Transfer Station which in turn adds to transfer costs. As a result, residents and ratepayers are strongly encouraged to compost grass clippings etc. … to help keep costs to a minimum. 

Residents and ratepayers may continue to haul DRY leaves, sticks etc. to the Transfer Station and place them in the pit.
