Residential Garbage and Recycling Collection

Canora residents are provided alternating household garbage or recycle collection every Friday, depending on the zone in which they are located. Collection begins at 6 a.m. or earlier so please have your carts out the night before. Residential garbage placed out for pick up must be in a black cart and recycling must be placed in a blue cart. Tires, furniture, appliances and construction debris will not be collected and must be taken to the landfill. Overfilled carts will not be emptied. For inquiries, please contact the town office (306) 563-5773.
