Rural Residential Waste Collection
Several areas within the Rural Municipality of Portage la Prairie are eligible for curbside waste collection on a fee for service basis.  Please contact the Municipal Office, 204-857-3821, to see if your area is eligible for curbside waste collection.
If your regularly scheduled waste collection day falls on a Holiday, please be advised that your waste collection will be missed that day.  You will then be able to put out twice the weekly limit the following week.
Guidelines for Waste Collection 
- Maximum 5 bag limit, household waste only.
- Waste must be out by 7:00 a.m. to guarantee pick up.
- Waste must be in an animal proof container.
- Waste must be placed at the end of your driveway, but far enough back from the roadway as to not impede the snow plow or maintainer.  The waste collection driver will not go onto private property to collect the waste.
Please don't throw away anything that is flammable, hot ashes, or chemicals. These items have a tendency of igniting the refuse load in a BFI rear loader. Ashes can be put out for regular garbage collection but must be fully cooled and in tightly sealed plastic bags.
