Way Less Waste

2021 and 2022 will see big changes to how most Kitimat
will manage their garbage. 


The District is following through on their new Solid Waste Action Plan with a 3 phase approach in implementing improvements to the curbside collection program. Ultimately, the District hopes these improvements will see the amount of residential garbage landfilled drop by two-thirds. 

Phase 1:  May 2021, seasonal yard waste collection (May through early November), and garbage must be placed in garbage containers no greater than 121 L

Phase 2: November 2nd 2021, bi-weekly collection of Recycling and curbside bylaw amendments.  Construction of Transfer Station at landfill for recyclables.  The DOK will distribute recycling containers to Kitimat households October 25 – 29th, 2021.

Phase 3:  Green bins delivered and food waste collection begins. If you did not get a green bin and a kitchen catcher (look inside green bin), please call us to let us know at (250)-632-8900.  As of January 4th, 2022, weekly collection of food waste and bi-weekly collection of garbage (alternating with recycling) begins. 

Spring/Summer 2022 construction of new landfill entrance with scalehouse.
