Single family homes and duplex residences receive curbside collection services from the City. Your green compostables cart is collected weekly, and your blue recycling cart and grey garbage cart are collected every two weeks on alternating weeks. View our Curbside Cart Collection Guide (available in English or Punjabi) and the sections below for more information on the carts.

Get the Abbotsford Curbside Collection App to access your collection schedule, Waste Wizard, and information about where to find the closest recycling depot or drop-off location right from your smart phone or tablet.

    Cart Requests

    If you regularly find yourself dealing with excess waste that doesn’t fit in your cart, you can exchange your recycling, compost or garbage cart for a larger one.  A second compost cart can also be requested. If excess waste is only an occasional issue, please see our Excess Waste page for tips on how to deal with extra waste.

    If your cart is too big, you can exchange it for a smaller one.  You can also exchange any standard 240 Litre cart for a bear-resistant cart.  

    We can also supply new carts if you have moved into a newly constructed home or have a lost or damaged cart.
