The garbage and recycling pick-up on Christmas Day and New Year's Day is postponed by one day. For example, if Christmas falls on a Monday, we will collect garbage on Tuesday. For all other days of the year, we follow the regular garbage and collection schedule.

Waste containers and replacements

A waste container of 120 litres (32 gallons) marked with the Township's logo is given to each residence. This container is the waste limit for each registered house in the Township each week. No other container can be used for the weekly collection.

If you're a new resident, you'll receive a container at the same time you get a unit building permit. The new container cost $40. We will pay 50% of that cost and the other 50% will be added to your next property tax bill. If there is no container left by the previous owner at your new home in the Township, you can contact the township  for a new container.

If your waste container is broken, lost or stolen, you'll need to purchase a replacement container for $40. You can purchase a new container at Town Hall. All broken containers must be returned to Town Hall.

Garbage Tags for Additional Bags

We'll collect up to 120 litres (32 gallons) of garbage from each registered house in the Township each week. If you have more garbage, you'll need to purchase and mark any additional bags with a yellow garbage tag.

Where to buy bag tags

You can purchase yellow bag tags at the following locations in the Township:

Consult the librarie's website for hours.

Cost of bag tags

Each bag tag costs $2. You must buy a minimum of 10 bags for $20.

How to use bag tags

  1. Place your extra waste in a garbage bag.
  2. Tie it securely.
  3. Stick the yellow garbage tag on the bag.
  4. Make sure that the sticker faces out to the street, so it is visible to the collection crew. Without the sticker, the collection crew will not pick up the bag.

Do not use tags for recycling, hazardous waste, bulky items or leaf and yard trimmings.

Bag dimension and other information

  • Use large standard garbage bags that are up to 75 litres (20 gallons) or approximately 30 inches by 33 inches (76 centimetres by 84 centimetres).
  • The bag must not weigh more than 30 pounds (13.6 kilograms)
  • In areas where wild animals are a problem, please place your additional garbage bag in a container without a lid. The yellow label should be clearly visible on top of the bag.

Recycling

Recyclable material can be put in a blue box, a clear bag or any container identified with an “R” or the word “Recycling.” Learn about our recycling and drop-off locations.

Paper and plastic can go in the same container. View our Recycle action flyer to learn what you can place in your recycling. If you place trash or non-recyclable content in your recycling, we won't collect the recycling and it will stay on the side of the road.

All the recycling goes to the sorting centre Recycle-Action.
