The City of Pembroke, along with surroundings municipalities, provides a collection program providing regular garbage, container and paper recycling and organic collection services to residential properties and to some multi-residential and commercial establishments.
Each residential unit is permitted a maximum of four (4) garbage bags or garbage cans with a maximum weight of any item not exceeding 50 lbs. (23 kg).
Residential recycling material will only be collected if set-out loose in recycling containers or other open-top, reusable containers.
Residents are reminded they must not use plastic grocery bags to set-out recyclables in their bins, even if the plastic bags are left untied. If they do, their bin will be stickered for non-compliance and will not be collected.
Shredded paper in clear plastic bags as well as bags of plastic bags (bread, produce, outside milk bags, blue newspaper bags, and grocery/retail bags) will be collected.
Special Garbage Collection is held twice a year; in the Spring and Fall. Please view the Collection Calendar dates and restrictions.
Leaf and Yard Waste Special Collection dates are held twice a year; in the Spring and Fall. Please view Collection Calendar for dates and restrictions.
Weekly Organics Collection is held during the summer months of June, July and August. The City of Pembroke provides weekly collection for organics in cart only; not extra paper bags or containers during this time period.
Christmas Tree Collection is held the second week of January. Please view Collection Calendar for dates and restrictions.
Placement for Collection Containers is restricted during the winter, especially during snow removal operations. Residents are remined to place garbage, recycling and greet cart collection items five (5) feet back, in the driveway, from the curb or pavement edge. All material being placed in green organic cart should be wrapped in newspaper to reduce the possibility of cart freezing. Balled newspaper should be placed on the grate in the cart and throughout the cart in layers. Paper cart liners or paper yard waste bags will also assist to keep the cart clean and from freezing.
