Waste Management

Regular garbage collection in Riverview takes place on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. To see your neighbourhood's schedule view the garbage collection map. All garbage must be placed at the road side before 6 a.m. on the day of collection but no earlier than 6 p.m. on the day before collection.

Blue/Green Sorting Program

The Town of Riverview follows the blue/green sorting program, which involves the separation of recyclable and compostable materials. Following the program is an easy way for citizens to do their part in reducing Riverview's carbon footprint. For information about sorting organic, recyclable and hazardous waste please consult RecycleSENB's waste sorting guide. RecycleSENB is responsible for the proper disposal of the area's solid waste. Its waste management aims to maximize diversion of materials from landfill and minimize environmental impact.

Blue and green bags containing improperly sorted waste will be tagged with an orange non-compliance sticker and left at the curb.

Spring & Fall Clean-Up

For one week during the months of May and October, the Town of Riverview offers a free special waste collection service for large and bulky items such as household appliances, furniture, yard waste, etc. Household hazardous waste is collected separately via the HHW mobile unit. Information related to the HHW mobile unit is released with the Clean-Up Week announcement.

Please keep in mind... 

  • Items must be placed at roadside before 6 a.m. on your regular collection day.
  • Leaves and yard waste go in green bags.
  • Branches must be tied together and cannot exceed lengths of 1.2 metres (4 ft).
