Spring yard trimmings pickup in Coquitlam

Trimmings, grass clippings, prunings and small branches should be put in kraft paper bags. Branches should be bundled but must be less than 7.5 centimetres (three inches) in diameter and not more than a metre in length.

Old garbage cans with a green can sticker, available from the engineering department at city hall, can be used. No food scraps should be in the containers, which cannot be put out before 5:30 a.m. of collection day and must not weigh more than 20 kilograms (44 pounds) each. Sod, rocks, soil and plastic bags will not be accepted.

The trimmings are collected by a separate truck so sometimes it will arrive later than the regular green cart collection. But if they aren’t picked up by 7:30 p.m. on collection day, call Waste Connections of Canada at 604-636-3520.

More information on the program is available at coquitlam.ca/yardtrimmings or by calling Coquitlam’s customer service line 24/7 at 604-927-3500.
