Garbage & Recycling

Home 9 Public Works 9 Garbage & Recycling
The Town in 2019 introduced the automated collection of garbage and yard waste/organics in Innisfail. The new services joined the existing ‘green box’ curbside recycling program to offer collection in a convenient, environmentally conscientious manner.

Regular Collection Services

Garbage


The Town of Innisfail provides weekly garbage collection for all households in the community. Garbage can be placed in the black cart assigned to residential addresses. If a single cart is insufficient for a residence’s needs, an additional cart(s) can be obtained for a fee. Please have your garbage out by 7:00 a.m. on your scheduled pickup day.

Cart wheels should be placed at the curb with the cart facing towards the road. Carts should be placed at least 1 metre (3 feet) from each other and from any other obstruction.

Seasonal Services & Events

Seasonal Organic Waste Collection - Bi-weekly collection begins November 1, 2021

Yard waste and organics are collected every week from June 1 to October 31. For all other remaining months, collection occurs biweekly. Pick up occurs on the same day as household waste collection.

The Town now only collects yard waste that can be included in residents’ organics carts. All organics and yard waste must be placed in carts, and no bags or bundles will be collected. For residents with yard waste that cannot be contained within their carts, the Town’s Waste Transfer Station accepts excess organics and yard waste at no additional charge.

This year, the event has been postponed indefinitely until further notice. Details will be announced later in the year.
Hazardous materials such as waste oil, electronics, and batteries can be taken to the Town’s Waste Transfer Station throughout the year at no additional cost to residents.
