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, ONLY shredded paper is acceptable in clear plastic bags.
Residents are reminded that all plastic bags (bread, produce, outside milk bags, blue newspaper bags, and grocery/retail bags) must not be placed in the Yellow Container but go in regular garbage.
Large Item Collection is held twice a year in the Spring and Fall. Please view the Collection Calendar dates and restrictions. This collection is for 'large items only' that would not typically not fit in regular garbage.
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; extra paper bags or containers during this time period will not be collected.
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 carts 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.
Blue Boxes/Yellow Bin/Net Recycling Covers can be purchased (CASH ONLY) at the City of Pembroke Operations Department at 460 River Road. Office hours are 7:30am until 4:00pm. Please view User Fees for recyclying container costs.
GARBAGE COLLECTION DURING WINTER MONTHS
Residents of the City of Pembroke are reminded to place garbage, recycling and green cart collection containers in their driveway, five (5) feet back from the curb or pavement edge, to facilitate snow removal operations and to avoid damage to collection containers.
Residents are also reminded collection containers must be placed at curbside before 5:00 a.m. on the day of collection. They can also be placed out the night before, after 7:00 p.m.
