The District of Sparwood provides curbside garbage pick-up for properties residing within the regular service area, as defined under section 4 of the Utility and Solid Waste Management Bylaw. Please note that there will be no garbage pickup on Statutory Holidays.

The District collects extra containers (bags are not permitted) of garbage as long as you put a trash tag on it or you can drop it off at the Transfer Station free of charge. Tags can be purchased at the District Office for $1.50.
If your couch is still in reasonable condition, you can drop it off at the Reuse Centre located at the Transfer Station. The District conducts an annual Spring Cleanup and will pick up a single truck load of household items including furniture, white goods, metal and wood for a nominal fee of $20.00 (free to seniors aged 65 and over), per household. White goods include appliances, household metal items such as hot water tanks, swing sets, barbecues, metal sheds, bicycles, etc. For more information on Spring Cleanup, please contact the Planning Department at 250.425.6271
