Collection Guide

Refuse Dos & Don’ts

  • DO NOT place hot ashes, liquids or Household Hazardous Waste (oil, paint, solvents, pesticides, etc.) in your black cart.
  • DO ensure that the cart lid closes completely or else automated trucks cannot pick-up.
  • DO NOT include tree branches—they should be brought to landfill for disposal.
  • DO NOT throw away needles—use biohazard containers available from your local pharmacy.
  • DO double bag all pet waste and litter.
  • DO NOT throw away construction and/or renovation waste—this waste should be brought to the landfill for disposal.
  • DO NOT take new carts when you move—leave behind for new residents.
  • DO contact us if a cart is lost/damaged/stolen, or to request extra/different size cart. If extra bins are required at your location there is a fee for the purchase of the bin and a weekly pick up fee for the extra bin(s).

  • Old furniture, beds, mattresses
  • Metals
  • Stones
  • Tires

 

Cart Placement

Please follow these quick steps to get ready for collection day:

 

1. Fill it: Place garbage in garbage bags and then in your black cart (recyclables should be loose inside your blue cart, and compost may be placed loose in your green cart, if applicable). The only exception is placing shredded paper inside a clear plastic bag.

Your carts are considered full when another garbage bag will not easily fit inside. Never place excess material above the rim of the cart or beside your cart.

 

2. Park it: Move cart to where the collection trucks can access it. Place cart out for collection no more than 12 hours prior to the start of collection day (6 a.m.), but only when full to save time and energy.

Place wheels against front curb or at least a 30cm (1 ft.) from your back hedge or fence. If you can open the lid without hitting any obstructions, you have successfully left enough space behind it.

Park it on flat ground at road level with the arrows on the lid toward the centre of road and ensure you are not blocking traffic.

 

3. Space it: Leave enough space between carts and other objects, as well as enough space to walk between your black, blue, and green carts.

There should be at least three metres (10 ft.) of space above your carts.

Please ensure your carts are at least .5 m (1.5 ft.) from obstacles on either side, such as parked cars, power poles, utility boxes, fences, downspouts, and garages. If these requirements are not met your cart may not be picked up.

 

4. Store it: Always return your carts to your property for storage.

Pull your empty garbage cart and recycling cart back onto your property by 4 p.m. the day following your collection, i.e. Tuesday pickup carts should be removed and stored by 4 p.m. on Wednesday.

You are responsible for taking care of your cart and keeping it clean.

 

Notes:

  • Carts must be stored on your property behind your fence or shrubs. If stored on your property but on the lane side of fence or shrubs the property, owner is responsible for stolen or damaged carts at all times.
  • If you have a green cart, all the above rules apply to the use of the green cart as it does for your blue and black carts.
  • In the winter, do not place carts on the top of or behind piles of snow.

 

Cart Maintenance

Wash your carts with a mild detergent as required. To clean your carts properly:

  1. Pour a bucket of hot water into the cart.
  2. Swish and empty the water in your garden or lawn, but try to keep the water away from sidewalks and walkways.
  3. Ensure the cart is dry before placing new material inside.
