New Curbside Waste Collection Gets Rolling this Fall

A change is coming to residential waste collection in Victoria. Starting September 13, residents receiving curbside waste collection can add yard waste to their green bin.

This service change means residents will need to wheel both grey and green bins to the curb on regular scheduled collection days. The City will continue to offer the Helping Hands Program to households that require assistance moving their bins to and from the curb. Saturday yard and garden waste drop-off service will also continue to be available at the Public Works Yard (417 Garbally Road) from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.

Curbside yard waste collection is expected to divert close to 400 tonnes of organic material from the landfill each year and will help meet the City’s zero waste and climate action goals.
