Organics green cart collection is changing to seasonal bi-weekly pickup for the winter months of November – March starting November 2, 2022, as the colder season means carts will have little to no yard waste. The cost of the 3 Stream Waste Collection has been pro-rated for the year to account for the seasonal bi-weekly pickup. 

Organics pickup dates for the next few months are November 2, 16, November 30, December 14, and December 28, 2022. Recycling and garbage pickup remain weekly. 

Prevent your organics from freezing to the inside of your cart once colder weather arrives by discovering these helpful tips from Okotoks Waste Services
