Waste and Recycling
Town of Riverview / Waste and Recycling

Waste collection in Riverview takes place on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. To find your schedule, and set automatic reminders, see the online schedule. Waste must be at the curb before 6 a.m. on the day of collection, but not before 6 p.m. on the night before collection. Each bag must weigh less than 18 kg (40 lb).

The Town is responsible for collecting waste at all residential households in Riverview. Southeast Eco360 (formerly Westmorland Albert Solid Waste Corporation) manages the area's solid waste program.

3-Stream Program

The Town of Riverview requires the separation of recyclables in a blue bag, organics in a green bag, and garbage in a clear bag. The green bag is collected weekly and the blue and clear bags are picked up on alternating weeks (see collection schedule). Learn more about what goes in which bag.

Bulk Waste and Household Hazardous Waste Collection

A special bulk waste collection is held twice per year for items not normally collected at the curbside. This includes household appliances, furniture, large electronics, yard clippings, etc. Remember, you can also donate usable furniture and household items to EnviroPlus (853-7722) and Habitat for Humanity ReStore (384-4664). For the safety of collectors, household hazardous waste is never accepted at the curb.

Spring collection: May 29-June 2, 2017

Fall collection: Oct.16-20, 2017

Outside of these weeks, you can also drop off bulk as well as household hazardous waste at the Eco360 eco-mobile unit. Check the schedule and guidelines on www.eco360.ca.
