Garbage and Recycling Master Plan
On June 23, 2010, City Council asked the Public Service to prepare a comprehensive waste management plan for the entire city to increase our waste diversion rate to 50% or more by reducing household garbage and significantly increasing household recycling.
More than 2,500 Winnipeggers participated in nine months of city-wide public consultations in 2011 to help develop Winnipeg’s new recycling and garbage services.
City Council approved the master plan on October 19, 2011. To view the master plan, visit winnipeg.ca/CLKDMIS
Effective the first week of October 2012, all single-family properties receive the following collection services.
- Garbage cart collection, every week of the year
- Recycling cart collection, every week of the year
- Yard waste collection, once every two weeks from April to November
