Garbage and recycling

Cascade Village receives condo and apartment complex garbage, recycling and green bin collection from the City of Burnaby. Residents must dispose of their household waste in the appropriate bins as the city may refuse pick-up or levy fines against the strata corporation if waste is continually disposed of in the wrong bin.

Recycling at Cascade Village

Cascade Village participates in the City of Burnaby’s recycling program; however, recycling is limited to mixed containers, newspapers, glass and paper products. Cardboard must be flattened before placing in the mixed paper bin. Review the city's recycling program.

Food waste and yard waste bins

Cascade Village also participates in the green bin food scraps and yard material recycling program. Residents are encouraged to wrap their organic food waste in newspaper before depositing into the green bin. The city DOES NOT ACCEPT BIODEGRADABLE PLASTIC BAGS OR ANY PLASTIC BAGS in the food recycle bin.

Large item and appliance pickup

DO NOT leave large items or appliances in common areas. Residents are solely responsible for making arrangements to dispose of large items or appliances. Contact the City of Burnaby and coordinate with the city for removal.

Most retailers also offer a haul away at delivery or haul away at installation service. Contractors completing work on resident premises must organize disposal themselves.
