Change or Add a Tote

For Electoral Area residents only. All other addresses should contact their municipality for more information.

Order a Different Tote

Standard tote sizes are 240L for the blue recycling tote, and 140L for the black garbage tote. This is enough for most homes (hint: 140L is roughly equal to 2 regular garbage cans). Larger 360L totes are also available.

Standard totes can be exchanged for a larger or smaller size for a $25 fee. Please note garbage totes larger than the standard size of 140L will be subject to an additional annual service fee, to ensure that all users pay the fair cost of garbage disposal.

See the form below for more information.


Order Bear-Proof Hardware

Bear-proof kits are available for garbage totes for a $60 installation fee.  Available to CVRD garbage customers only. Fill out and submit the Tote Exchange Form (see link above) to order. All other residents should contact their municipality or private service provider for more information.
