Garbage, new garbage carts

Residential Garbage Collection

In Peace River trash is picked up using a standardized waste cart system, that means every household in town is assigned a waste cart for collection days, which they are responsible for.

Curb or alley pickup?

Generally speaking, whether you have a drive way or not, collection is at the front of the house on the street, not the alley ways. This includes both the trash carts and recycling bags.

However, some addresses cannot access the street safely for garbage collection. If you reside at one of those addresses then both your garbage and recycling would be placed in the alley. To determine if your address is alley pickup please download our list – you can use Ctrl + F  (Cmd + F on a Mac) to search your address on the document.
