Town of Canmore

Garbage Collection

Animal proof brown garbage bins are located conveniently throughout Town in all neighborhoods.  The bins are emptied on a regular basis and help manage garbage collection while keeping wildlife safe in the valley. 

Tips for Garbage Collection

  • Please make sure the lids are closed after you deposit your garbage in the bins. It's only bear-proof if the bin door is fully latched.
  • If the bins are full, locate the next closest bin in your neighborhood- which should not be far away
  • If you see a bin that needs to be emptied contact the Solid Waste Services team at 403.678.1580.
