➢ All items must be less than 2 meters and weigh less than 200 lbs.
➢ Limit of two large items per household.
➢ All items must be contained within a 2-meter x 4-meter area on your yard, or portion of your property that is easily accessible from the road.
➢ Please place items on the same side of the property (front or back alley) where the garbage is normally collected.
➢ Be mindful of the 1-meter clearance on all sides of the garbage bin when selecting an area for the curbside pickup items.
➢ Different trucks collect different items and where possible, items are sent to be recycled.
➢ Various electronics can be taken to the ECO Centre.
What if all my items can’t fit within the 2 metre x 4 metre area? What can I do with them?
Residents can bring all extra items that can be found on the acceptable or non-acceptable list to the landfill. Please ensure all fridges and freezers are empty prior to disposal. Electronics can be taken at the Eco Centre or landfill. Yard waste is also accepted at the landfill, but it is required that “brush and branches” and “leaves and grass” be separated and not placed into plastic bags or contaminated with any other debris. Brush/branches/leaves/grass can also be disposed of in the yard waste bin set up in the Centennial Parking Lot. Yard Waste Disposal Bin Available For Use – Town of Peace River
Can I choose which of the days to participate?
Residents can only place their items out on their regularly scheduled garbage pickup day.
To find your regular garbage collection day for your neighbourhood, please visit: Garbage Collection | Town of Peace River
It’s the end of the day for Curbside Pickup and my items are still here? Were they missed? Do I bring them back inside?
Your items were not missed, and we ask that you please keep them out! Different trucks take different items, depending on size and material, so pickup will continue until the end of the working week. By the end of the day Friday, all items will be collected. If your items were somehow missed, please contact Town Hall.
