The City of Portage la Prairie operates a 5-day solid waste collection cycle. Garbage collection is on the front street year round. Garbage should be on the curb by 7:00 a.m. on your collection day. There is a two bag/can limit on the amount of solid waste that will be picked up from the curb each collection day. Anything over that amount must have a Solid Waste Collection Tag affixed. These tags can be purchased from all corner stores (except 7-11), all grocery stores, MCC, City Hall and the Operations Department. Visit our Solid Waste Collection Page for more information on our Landfill, Recycling Program, Tree Disposal Site and Compost Site.
