Abbotsford 2021 curbside collection calendar

December 15, 2020

Your 2021 Abbotsford garbage schedule should be arriving over the next few days!

Cover scaled

Here is a sneak peek if it hasn't arrived yet, and 1 section that is USUALLY overlooked, and undervalued!

If your household is anything like ours you quickly open it up to find what is and maybe more importantly what is not allowed according to the Abbotsford garbage rules.

We are always quick to check if household glass is allowed, or if the new recycling rules allow plastic shopping bags.

Unfortunately yet again, glass and plastic shopping bags will not be allowed in the Blue Curbside Collection bins.

Glass and plastic bags can be recycled at one of the Recycle BC Depots.

The next place we look is the Curbside pickup calendar

Fortunately for us our Abbotsford garbage day has not changed.

If yours has changed, and you think you may need some help remembering there is an app available for download.

The Abbotsford Curbside Collection app is available for download on both Apple and Android OS.

Abbotsford yard waste drop off

As a landscaper in Abbotsford I LOVE that the city also provides us yard waste drop off.


These coupons allow residents of Abbotsford to dispose of organic material for free.

What can I dispose of with these coupons?

If you need professional help send Back 40 landscaping an email.

We frequently use these coupons on behalf of our clients to reduce disposal costs

Usually we are provided with 6 coupons, however in 2021 we will be provide 3 initially, and another 6 when our new wheeled bins arrive.

This is to help us with the transition to the new wheeled bins arriving in February 2021.
