Garbage & Recycling
STATUTORY HOLIDAYS & CURBSIDE COLLECTION:
There are NO HOLIDAY CHANGES to the curbside collection schedule (recycling and garbage) unless Christmas or New Year’s Day falls on your regular collection day.
• The Blue Box signals the driver to stop at your laneway. If you have a cardboard box full of flattened cardboard, please put your Blue Box out as well to signal the driver to stop.
• Put your Blue Box out for collection when it is full – or to signal driver as above.
• Save room in your Blue Box and in the recycling truck by crushing plastic bottles & retightening their lids, flattening tetra packs & tin cans, stacking plastic containers inside each other.
• Make empty recyclables the last thing you rinse in your dishwater or use them to fill empty spaces when you run your dishwasher. There is no need to use fresh hot water to rinse recyclables.
• Books: donate, trade or sell. To recycle hardcover books remove the covers & spine of the book, then recycle all portions.
The "actual" time for curbside recycling and garbage pickup may vary from week to week, therefore residents should have their recyclables and waste at the curbside by 7:00 a.m. on their scheduled day for curbside collection.
Note: Recycle pickup dates are on the same day as regular garbage pickup, and there are no interruptions during the year except when Christmas and New Year's days falls on your regular pickup day.
Your Township is working with our curbside collection contractor to enforce waste management By-law #2008-042
Bag Limit: Two (2) bags per dwelling unit per week, weighing not more than 18 kg/40 lbs. each, will be picked up. (Bag Tags are not necessary for these items)
Bag Tags: Blue tags may be used for extra items (anything over the two bag limit) for disposal. Bag Tags may be purchased for $2.00 each at the Code Road Landfill or the Municipal Office.
Container Size: If garbage bags are placed in a garbage container for collection, that container shall not be more than 17 gallons in volume. ‘Oversized’ wheeled bins & carts are designed for use by automated lifters in urban settings, and present a health & safety risk for collection staff.
