Dawson Creek Council is pleased to advise that the new Automated Residential Waste Collection System will commence the week of October 19, 2015.  

Mayor Bumstead states “I am happy that the time has come for automated collection in Dawson Creek. This new system will provide residents with the continued reliable garbage collection service they expect and using standardized containers will regulate garbage volumes entering the landfill and limit the garbage that escapes the container and ends up on the streets.”

The new carts will be delivered to each residence starting the week of September 28th, 2015.  Each account will receive one cart at no cost. As the truck required for automated collection will not be in service until the week of October 19, 2015, please keep using your current container until then. It is very important that the new carts not be placed at the curb until your regularly scheduled day during the week of October 19, 2015. For further information please contact the Utilities Department at 250-784-3610.

Council would like to thank Waste Management Ltd. for their assistance with providing information to residents about the new system. Please read the leaflet included with your cart about how the new service will work including tips on proper placement of the cart on collection day.
