Garbage collection shall be carried out on a weekly basis throughout the Town. Garbage is to be placed at the curb no later than 7:00 am on the day of collection. Where garbage is placed in a secure container, the owner may place it for collection the night prior to the scheduled collection day. Permanent garbage containers must have a visible marker to indicate 'full' or 'empty'.
Each improved property that receives garbage collection is allowed to place one bag (not to exceed 40 pounds) per week at the roadside for collection. This includes apartment buildings or buildings with more than one dwelling/unit. Each additional bag requires a bag tag to be attached. A maximum of three bags per week is allowed to be placed for collection. Residents may purchase a set of ten bag tags at a cost of $20.00 (ex. $2.00 each) at various locations within the Town; scroll down for the list of locations.
Any complaints or inquiries regarding curbside collection may be directed to our contractor, Miller Waste, at 519-372-1855 with the exception of Sunnyview Dr, Sunny Cres, Sunny Ln, Golf Course Rd, and Tri Par Ln, who can contact the Public Works Department.
