Collection Schedules

Garbage pickup - update

February 20, 2019 -  Saanich crews have attempted to maintain service throughout the unique weather last week and have been able to successfully collect garbage and organics for most of the residents who were initially missed.  

There are a small number of residents who still may not have had their garbage or organics collected. For those who were missed, we will be by to collect on your next regularly scheduled pickup day. Thank you for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Never miss your collection day!

Our online notification tools remind you when to take your garbage and organics to the curb.
