Winnipeg Garbage Pickup Schedule

Bulk Waste Pickup Calendar 2024

For an additional fee, you can request a pickup for extra garbage and/or large items (also known as bulky waste).

Extra garbage pickups are limited to no more than three extra standard-sized garbage bags.  Large item pickups are limited to ten items, per pickup.

Contact the city​ to request your pickup at least two full business days before your regular recycling and garbage collection day.  Extra garbage bags and many large items will be picked up on your regular collection day, but some larger appliances may be picked up on a different day.  Your pickup day will be confirmed when you request your pickup.​

If you need to modify or cancel your pickup, contact the city​ at least two full business days before your scheduled pickup day.​​​​​​​​​​​

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Winnipeg and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
