Recycling

Gateway Resources provides curbside recycling pick-up service for the City of Winkler.  Within city limits, residential curbside pickup of household recyclable items (not E-waste) is set up to co-ordinate with the city’s weekly garbage collection schedule. Blue box recyclables should be placed at the curbside by 7:45 a.m. on the morning of collection day to ensure pick-up. For information on collection dates for your area please refer to the City of Winkler Collection Calendar. 

E-waste can be dropped off at our Recycling Depot.

As well, businesses, those living outside of Winkler city limits who do not receive recycling curbside pick-up (and Winkler residents) can drop off household recyclables at the Recycling Depot, open 24/7.
