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

A Public Health Approach to Non-Medical Cannabis

POSTED: September 21, 2018 | Mayors Blog

As District of Stewart Council will adopt few by-laws at the coming meeting, I want to share with citizens the letter from the Northern Health. I feel that this is a very important matter for many people, living in Stewart and Council should consider Health Authorities recommendations.

Multiple sectors of society, and all levels of government, have roles to play in a comprehensive public health approach to cannabis legalization. Local governments, in particular, can adopt regulations aimed at reducing youth exposure to non-medical cannabis, high-risk use in general (e.g., heavy or frequent use, use with other substances), and unwanted exposure to second-hand cannabis smoke and vapour. Local governments can also support increasing public knowledge and awareness, to support risk reduction and destigmatization, without normalization or promotion. Local U]dS`\[S\bal Xc`WaRWQbW]\ W\ h]\W\U' ZO\R caS' PcaW\Saa ZWQS\aW\U' PcWZRW\U Q]RSa' \cWaO\QS by-laws, and enforcement, as well as their ability to advocate to higher levels of government, can all be leveraged to promote a public health approach to cannabis.4 Some specific areas of best practice5 where local governments can support a public health approach include:
