Garbage

General guidelines

Garbage is picked up every second week in Esquimalt. If your regular garbage day falls on a statutory holiday, your garbage will be picked-up on the next business day.

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for timely garbage updates, or subscribe to our Esquimalt Alert service.


  • You can also view the garbage collection map or phone 250-414-7108. Garbage is collected from the north and south sides of the municipality on alternate weeks.

Please have your garbage outside with bungee cords removed from the lid by 7 a.m. on your collection day.
