Request to Downsize Garbage Cart

Request to Downsize Garbage Cart

Think you need a smaller garbage cart? Some things to consider:

  • Green (kitchen & yard) waste will be picked up weekly at single family homes. Garbage will be collected every other week. Recycling will continue to be collected every other week.
  • Remember that a wide variety of items can go into your recycling and green (kitchen & yard waste) carts.
  • Request that retailers take back large amounts of packaging before making a purchase. Large pieces of cardboard and styrofoam are difficult to manage at curbside.
  • All carts remain the property of the City of Port Moody and are assigned to residential addresses.

NOTICE: Carts to be picked up for exchange must be clean. Staff cannot pick up carts if they have not been recently washed out.

Keep your carts clean by washing/rinsing  your carts periodically with mild soap or a vinegar-water solution. Pour soapy water onto grass or gravel. Do not pour soapy water down outside drains.
