Garbage, Organics & Recycling

The Universal recycling (blue cart) and organics (green cart) collection Program started in October 2016. The blue cart for recycling is picked up weekly on the same day as your black cart collection. The green cart for organics is also picked up weekly from May to October and then bi-weekly November to April. View the collection schedule online or download Waste Mobile app to know when to put out your green (organics) cart.
