Collection Services in Snow and Ice
In the event of hazardous road conditions due to snow and/or ice, the City may find it necessary, in the interest of public safety, to temporarily cancel garbage, green cart or recycling collection.
If this occurs, notifications will be posted on the PoCo Sort & Report app, on the City’s social media channels, at portcoquitlam.ca/snow and aired on local radio stations CKNW AM 980, CKWX 1130 and CBC (690).
In the event of cancelled collections, City crews will continue to collect the waste for the missed zone(s) after the next day's collection zone is completed. In extreme conditions it may require several days of collection to fully service the affected zone(s).
The City appreciates your patience and cooperation should this occur.
Collection Changes During Cold Weather:
When overnight temperatures dip below zero, the City may pick up green carts later in the day than usual to allow the contents to thaw.
