Collection Schedules

All garbage collection is weekly and all recycling collection is bi-weekly. A copy of the  GFL Environmental A-B Week collection schedule is available here. To determine the collection week and day of the week collection for your property address, view the Garbage and Recycling Collection Zone map here

There is no collection service on the following holidays:  

  • New Year's Day
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

Following a no-collection holiday, all routes are pushed back one day. For example: if Christmas Day is Tuesday, and your collection day is normally Wednesday, you will be serviced on Thursday. Customers who are normally serviced on Friday will be serviced on Saturday. Holidays that fall on a weekend do not impact the collection schedule
