Effective April 18, 2022, the Township will strictly enforce By-law 2020-36 which allows each residential unit to dispose of a maximum of 120 litres of household garbage per week in the municipally provided garbage bin. Any excess bag must be clearly tagged and weigh less than 30 lbs. Excess bags that are not tagged, or any items deemed unacceptable will no longer be collected.

The same applies to recycling collection. Although there is no maximum amount of recycling allowed, there are certain guidelines that must be followed, and the municipality reserves the right not to collect recycling that is deemed non-compliant.
