Organized Trash & Recycling Collection

The City of Little Canada instituted organized collection of trash in 1989. Under organized collection, the city contracts with a specific hauler(s) for the collection of residential trash and recyclables from all of our single-family homes and duplex dwellings

Each hauler is assigned a specific area within the city for collection services. Residents are required to use the hauler that is assigned to their area for trash and recycling collection services.

Note: Multi-family dwellings and townhome associations are not covered under the City's organized collection program. Residents of these properties and associations should contact their contracted hauler directly.
