Garbage, Recycling and Composting

Please Note: The City of Abbotsford has closed all City facilities until further notice to support slowing the spread of COVID-19. All information and community updates related to COVID-19 and City services are updated regularly on the City website.

During this closure period, if you require extra garbage stickers, replacement yard waste coupons, compostables container labels or collection schedules, please submit these requests at 604-864-5514 or email: eng-info@abbotsford.ca. We will do our best to respond to requests as soon as possible. Curbside collection services will continue as scheduled.

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.


Upcoming Changes to the Curbside Program 

The City’s Curbside Collection Program will be adopting a cart-based automatic collection system where residents will be provided three carts; one each for recycling, compostables and garbage. The changes to the curbside collection program are expected to be operational by spring 2021.

The City will also be undertaking an analysis on what it costs to collect glass and large oversized items such as furniture and mattresses. View current information on this initiative at abbotsford.ca/curbside2021.


Upcoming Compostable Collection Requirements

All multi-family, industrial, commercial and institutional properties that currently do not collect compostable waste separately from garbage will need to start doing so by April 1, 2020. View current information on this initiative, including available resources at abbotsford.ca/compostables.
