Collection & Schedule and Landfill Information

Collection & Schedule and Landfill Information

The District of Stewart provides weekly curbside garbage collection.

Garbage pick-up schedule is:

  • Residential:  Wednesdays
  • Businesses:  Mondays & Fridays
  • Dumpsters:  Regularly 

As pick-up times may vary on the scheduled pick-up day, materials must be placed at the curb before 8:00 a.m.

Garbage collection day pick-up tips:

  • Put your garbage out by 8 a.m. on your collection day.
  • Put your garbage at the curb or lane in a spot that is easy for the collectors to see and reach.
  • Each filled garbage can should be light enough to carry easily with one hand to the curb or lane.
  • Do not overfill garbage containers with heavy material
  • Leave 15 to 20 centimetres (6 to 8 inches) of bag above the twist tie so that the collectors can get a firm hold on the bag.
  • Clear a path through to your collection area. Shovel any ice and snow so that collectors can see and get to your garbage and recyclable materials.
  • Keep parked vehicles away from your collection area on collection day.
  • Do not put bags and cans on top of snow banks, as the constant lifting above shoulder level can injure collection crews.
  • Bag and tie all grass clippings and yard waste – or better still, try composting them.
  • If you use grocery bags or other small kitchen-sized bags for your garbage, put them in larger sealed garbage cans.
  • Load garbage cans loosely. Items jammed or wedged tightly into cans, such as boxes and branches, can make the cans difficult to empty, and may damage them.
  • Place all loose garbage, such as sawdust, ashes and vacuum contents, in sealed bags. Loose garbage can blow out of the truck into the collectors' eyes and litter neighbourhoods.
  • Put all sharp objects, such as needles, broken glass, and nails, in puncture-proof containers.
  • Do not put out bulky waste for regular garbage collection.

If your collection day has passed and your garbage has not been collected please, give a call to our Public Works Department at 250-636-2742
