Residents can buy $5 tags at City Hall and Shoppers Drug Mart (Pitt Meadows branch) to have extra garbage or green waste picked up. Two tags per regular garbage/green waste service day allowed.

Green Bin Tip!

Keep plastic liners out of your Green Bin, even if they claim to be “compostable” or “biodegradable”. These items can cause operational problems and may not break down properly during processing. Instead, use paper bags or newspaper.
