Once a week – on Fridays
In Kirkland, household waste collection takes place once a week on Fridays, starting at 7:00 am. Garbage bags and discarded waste must be placed at the curb after 6 p.m. Thursday evening or before 7:00 am Friday morning. You must ensure that they are placed on your property and not on the street, so as not to obstruct the street sweeper or the snow plows. Otherwise, the streets cannot be cleaned properly.
If you miss the garbage collectors, please ensure that your garbage is stored in your garage until the next collection day, out of respect for your neighbours and to avoid attracting night time visitors.
Please note that the town does not provide specific bins for household waste, citizens must get their own bags and garbage bins.
To help protect the environment and in an effort to reduce the volume of residual waste going to landfill sites, let's always remember to limit the contents of our garbage bags to ultimate waste, meaning residual waste that cannot be recycled, recovered or reused.
Branches and Bulk Items
Please note that Branches
and Bulk Items
are no longer accepted in the household waste collection, for they are now part of separate recycling programs.
