Residential Recycling Waste & Compost

Trash Collection

Winkler offers curb-side trash and recycling pickup to residences; businesses may take recyclable items to Gateway Resources at 1582 Pembina Avenue W. 
Trash and recycling collection occurs each week on the scheduled collection date. All trash and/or recycling must be placed at the curbside before 4:00 a.m. on the morning of collection day to ensure pick-up. Please refer to the waste and recycling links below.
If you've recently moved to Winkler and you do not have a blue box, just visit City Hall at 185 Main Street and we will be happy to give you one. If you require an additional blue box, the fee is $8.00 each.
