Waste collection 

View the 2024 Waste Collection Schedule. On your collection day, place your bin at the curb between 5:30 and 7:30am.  The lid on your cart needs to shut completely and make sure to unclip your bear locks.

Contact us by email or call 604-469-4574 if you have questions about your carts or collection.

Single-use plastics regulations 

Previously, the City of Port Moody had a bylaw in place to regulate the distribution of single-use plastic and foam items such as plastic check-out bags, foam containers for prepared food, and plastic drinking straws. To avoid overlap with senior government regulations and simplify compliance, we no longer regulate single-use items. 

Announced in July 2023, the B.C. government’s Single-Use and Plastic Waste Prevention Regulation is coming into effect in phases:

  • December 20, 2023 – restrictions on food service accessories (e.g. utensils, napkins, straws, cup lids and sleeves)
  • July 15, 2024 – restrictions on plastic shopping bags, food service ware (e.g. disposable take-out containers), and oxo-degradable plastics
  • July 15, 2024 – minimum fees on alternative shopping bags
  • July 1, 2028 – restrictions on PVC film wrap
  • July 1, 2030 – restrictions on polystyrene foam meat trays 

B.C.’s regulation applies to business operators and food service providers. For more information and resources, visit gov.bc.ca/reuse. If you have a question about enforcement or wish to report non-compliance, email plastics@gov.ca

The federal government has introduced the Single-Use Plastics Prohibition Regulations, which prohibit the manufacture, import, and sale of single-use plastic check-out bags, cutlery, food service ware made from or containing problematic plastics, ring carriers, stir sticks, and straws. Single-use plastic flexible straws that are not packaged with beverage containers are excluded from the prohibitions under certain conditions. Visit canada.ca to learn more.
