LIVING IN KENT WASTE REMOVAL & RECYCLING
There is no municipal residential garbage pick-up within the District of Kent. However, several private waste disposal contractors provide service to the area. Please check the yellow pages under “Waste Reduction & Disposal Service” and “Garbage Collection” to arrange your pick up schedule and payment with the company of your choice.
Residents are encouraged to recycle certain materials by visiting the Agassiz Bottle Depot Ltd. and Kent Recycling or arranging a curb-side pickup program with a privately owned waste collection contractor.
