Curbside Waste Collection

The City of Thompson collects garbage and recycling from curbside bins on a 5-day schedule. Bins should be out by 7:00 am to ensure collection, and roadside parking is not permitted on garbage days where it will interfere with curbside waste collection.

If your bins were out by 7:00 am on your garbage day and your waste was not collected, please call us as soon as possible. Almost always, we can collect your garbage the following day.

When the Garbage Truck is Broken Down

The City of Thompson usually has dedicated garbage and recycling trucks. When one truck is away for repairs or maintenance, one truck collects both garbage and recycling: recycling is collected in the morning, while garbage pick-up takes place in the evening. Delayed evening pick-up can take place as late as 8:00pm.
