Curbside collection is undertaken by the City of Abbotsford using a fully automated cart-based collection system for single family homes and duplexes across the City. Food and yard waste is combined and collected in a green cart. Recycling is placed unbagged in a blue cart. Garbage is place bagged or unbagged in a grey cart. The green compost cart is collected weekly, and the blue recycling cart and grey garbage cart are collected every second week on alternating weeks.
