how to use the maps

First, click on the below map for your refuse collection day.

If the collection area map is color-coded for Next that means your area will soon be serviced by the Streets Division and you should place your material to the curb. We cannot guarantee a specific day as to when the collection will occur. Generally speaking, if your area is marked Next, it would be reasonable to expect your material to be collected within one to two weeks (barring any unforeseen circumstances such as extreme weather).

If the collection area map is color-coded for Current that means your district is presently being serviced by Streets Division crews. It is not advisable to set out material if your area is marked as Current. These maps are updated after the end of the collection crews' shift at 3pm. If you place material to the curb when your area is Current, it is possible that crews will have worked through your neighborhood before you will able to get the material to the curb, and before the maps were updated to reflect the crews progress. This means you will need to wait until the next collection round.

If the collection area map is color-coded for Round Complete that means your area has been collected for this round and crews will rotate back to your neighborhood again. Please continue monitoring the progress of the maps to learn when to set the material to the curb. Material set to the curb when the area is marked Round Complete will sit on the terrace for multiple weeks until crews can rotate to that neighborhood again.

If the collection area map is color-coded for Season Over that means the collection window for this material has ended for the season. You should not place this material to the curb. Material set to the curb when the area is marked Season Over will sit on the terrace until collection of this material resumes, which will likely be in several months.
