Organics Curbside Collection

The Town of Gibsons’ new organics curbside collection program has begun! (Please see the Frequently Asked Questions sheets, below, for answers to your most common questions.) Additionally, garbage collection has now changed from weekly to bi-weekly (i.e. every other week), with some residents experiencing a different pickup day from before.

Unsure of your organics and garbage collection days? Use our new Gibsons Waste Collection app (below) to find out which Zone you live in, see when your collection days will be, sign up for collection reminders, report a problem and much more!

Organic Curbside Collection: Information Sheets

In order to help residents stay informed about these changes and how they will unfold, we have created a series of Frequently Asked Questions sheets, which may be downloaded below. These include answers to common questions such as Why Do We Need an Organics Diversion Program? and Where Do I Get the Materials I Need to Participate in the Program?
