Garbage, Recycling, and Yard & Garden Waste

Curbside Collection of recycling from multi-family residential properties (those with 5+ units), and Curbside Collection of garbage, recycling, and yard & garden waste from all other residential properties is contracted by the District of Summerland to Waste Connections of Canada (formerly Progressive Waste Solutions). Waste Connections of Canada may be reached at 250-490-3888 or
1-866-998-4888.

The Curbside Collection program is compulsory for all residential properties and you are not able to opt out. 

Multi-family residential properties (those with 5+ units) must make direct arrangements with a private hauler for the collection of garbage and yard & garden waste. Non-residential properties must make direct arrangements with a private hauler for the collection of all waste materials.

The cost for Curbside Collection of residential garbage, recycling, and yard & garden waste is $14.50 per month ($13.05 if paid by the due date) and is automatically added to your utility bill every month.

The cost for Curbside Collection of recycling from multi-family residential properties (those with 5+ units) is $5.00 per month ($4.50 if paid by the due date) and is automatically added to your utility bill every month.

The multi-family recycling collection schedule is the same as the schedule for recycling collection from other residential properties. The July 2018 - June 2019 Collection Calendar can be found by clicking here.

If you would like to receive a reminder for your collection day, please open this link to the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) website and type your home address in the space provided. NOTE: other garbage, recycling, and yard & garden waste information on the RDOS website may not apply, as Summerland's landfill and other waste programs are administered directly by the District of Summerland, not the RDOS.
