The City of Salmon Arm provides the curbside collection of residential food waste, recycling, garbage and yard waste for all single-family dwellings, bare land stratas, mobile homes and other eligible dwellings within the City limits. Food waste is collected weekly, while recycling and garbage are collected every second week, on alternating weeks. Yard waste is collected once in the spring and once in the fall. Please view the 2021 Program Guide (PDF) and Frequently Asked Questions (PDF) for program details.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, garbage and food waste bag tags can be ordered online.

Please note that your garbage, recycling, food waste and yard waste can be taken to the Salmon Arm Landfill at any time during their normal operating hours. At this time, food waste taken to the landfill will be treated as garbage (refuse) and charged as such. Yard waste and recycling disposal are free. Please contact the CSRD directly if further information is required.
