Recycling, Compost & Garbage
Please Note: City Hall is open for select services by appointment only. Cashiers on the first floor remain open and do not require an appointment. All other City facilities remain closed at this time. For up-to-date information on what is re-opening, visit abbotsford.ca/reopening. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding as we put public safety first.
During this period, if you require replacement yard waste coupons or collection schedules please submit these requests at 604-864-5514 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Compostable waste container stickers are available in the first floor lobby at City Hall. Extra garbage stickers can also be purchased in person from the Cashiers at City Hall. If you are not able to visit City Hall to pick up or purchase stickers, please call the Matsqui Recreation Centre for other available options at 604-855-0500 (dial 0 when the recording begins). We will do our best to respond to requests as soon as possible.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect our waste collection staff, all garbage must be bagged and securely tied. Please note that loose items placed in curbside garbage containers will not be accepted. Paper towel, paper napkins and facial tissue are temporarily not accepted with compostables and should be disposed of with regular garbage. Curbside collection services are continuing as scheduled.
