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 SE Recycle waste sorting guide. SE Recycle 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.

Holiday Waste Collection

There will be no waste collection on December 25 and January 1 due to the statutory holidays. Garbage that is normally picked up on Thursday will instead be collected on Saturday over the holidays.

There will also be a special collection for Christmas trees during the week of January 5-11. Trees must be accessible and at the curb by 6 a.m. on residents' regular pick-up day, as free of ornaments and tinsel as possible, and not in plastic bags.
