If you are unable to take your christmas tree to the transfer station, the City will be collecting christmast trees during the week of January 15 - 19, 2018, Place your tree out with your household waste. Place the tree beside your household waste so as not to interfer with access to your garbage can.

Holiday Pick-Up Schedule: 2018 Holiday Waste Collection Schedule

Pick-up begins at 7:00 am, and garbage must not be set out before 5:00 am on garbage collection day – unattended garbage attracts bears and other wildlife.  


  • Garbage must be set at the curb in garbage cans with tight fitting lids.
  • No loose garbage may be placed in the garbage cans
  • Garbage must be contained in plastic garbage bags and the bags must be tied closed.
  • Each household may put out a maximum of two garbage cans (two garbage bags allowed in each garbage can). See our garbage can specifications for sizes.
  • Garbage cans must be kept clean as smelly garbage cans also attract wildlife.


No recyclable materials will be collected.  All yard and garden waste, paper, cardboard, glass containers, etc. are to be taken to the Kimberley Transfer Station at 800 Jim Ogilvie Way.  There are also yellow bins set out in key locations around the City for recycling paper, cardboard, tin & aluminum cans and plastic milk jugs. 

The Recycling Program and the Transfer Station are managed by the Regional District of the East Kootenay (RDEK).  Please click on the following links for more information on recycling and on what is accepted at the Transfer Station:
