If your garbage is scheduled to picked up 

A reminder to residents to have your garbage out by 7:00 AM on your normal collection day. This is to ensure no one is missed, as garbage collection "times of the day" may vary from week to week.

Excess Waste Bags

If your black cart is full do not try to overfill it, instead use an extra garbage bag or an extra compostable organics bag if your green card is full.  These excess bags of garbage and organic materials must be tagged and placed at your collection point with your carts.  Residents can  purchase Excess Waste Tags for a fee at the Strathmore Municipal Office. Bags must be placed ½ meter away from any collection cart.

 

 

*Christmas Tree Collection will be available January 12, 2022. Please place your tree at your regular collection site by 7:00am on January 12, 2022 and Waste Management will collect it. ("Real" trees only.)
