All materials accepted in the curbside compostable program are also accepted for drop off at the Net Zero Waste Composting Facility. Direct drop off allows larger yard waste items to be disposed of without having to cut them up into sections to meet curbside collection requirements. Each coupon is valid for one free yard waste drop off of a 5x8 foot utility trailer to a maximum weight of one tonne.
City of Abbotsford residents currently receiving curbside collection typically receive six yard waste drop off coupons in the annual mail out of the curbside collection calendar. For 2021, three yard waste coupons will be provided with the collection schedule mailed in early December 2020. An additional six yard waste coupons will be provided with the new collection schedule that will arrive with the new carts when they are delivered to home. The additional coupons are being provided to residents in 2021 to assist with the transition to the new cart program.
If you did not receive your coupons in the mail or have misplaced your coupons, please visit the Engineering Department on the fourth floor of Abbotsford City Hall, located at 32315 South Fraser Way, to obtain replacement coupons. Replacement yard waste coupons can be requested by providing photo ID as proof of residency for the address that you are requesting the coupons for. If you do not have a photo ID, other acceptable documentation includes a utility bill, property taxes or something similar that shows your name and the address the coupons are requested for. Please note that only one set of replacement coupons will be provided in any calendar year (January to December). Replacements coupons for 2021 will be available by request beginning January 4, 2021.
