Curbside Recycling, Compostables and Garbage Collection

Update - Friday, January 12, 2018:

Curbside Collection crews are making every effort to collect materials today for the Friday collection zones.  Delays are expected due to conditions.  Please leave materials out until at least 6pm tonight.

Chilliwack Mountain: Emterra will not be able to complete collections for some parts of Chilliwack Mountain.  If you live on Chilliwack Mountain and your materials were missed, please place them back at the curb on Monday as crews will be returning to areas they weren't able to service today.

If residents from areas other than Chilliwack Mountain experience missed collections today, please call Emterra on Monday, January 15th at 604.795.7795.

Promontory update: Emterra was not able to perform makeup collections on Promontory today but will have crews return to Promontory on Monday to collect materials from the areas that were not serviced on Thursday, January 11th.
