Garbage Collection

Garbage Collection Transition

The Town has hired a new garbage collection contractor that will take over the curbside garbage collection duties in the New Year.  Beginning Wednesday, January 2, 2019, Waste Management Canada will be the new company collecting bagged garbage curbside.  There will be no changes to the collection procedures, rules, or bag limits; all collection practices will remain the same.  Residents are reminded to have their garbage out at the curb by 7:00 am on the day of pick-up as the new driver may arrive at a different time than the previous contractor.  As the new contractor learns our routes, there may be issues that may come up; the phone number for Waste Management is 1-888-730-3344 and residents are permitted to contact Waste Management directly for curbside collection issues/complaints.  We thank all our residents for their patience during this transition.


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 $30.00 (ex. $3.00 each) at various locations within the Town; scroll down for the list of locations.
