Recycling, Compost & Garbage

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.

Cart collection started April 19, 2021! Homes have been provided three carts; one each for the curbside collection of recycling, compostables and garbage.
