Waste - black cart

Waste may be placed loose or in regular garbage bags inside your cart. Typically waste items are made from two or more different types of materials and are combined into one.

All waste must fit inside the cart with the lid completely closed. Overflowing items can fall out when they are being collected making a mess on the street. Overflowing carts may not be collected. Open lids also attract birds and animals. 

If you regularly have extra waste or organics, you can get an extra cart (additional fees will apply).

Materials left outside the cart will not be collected. Carts must weigh less than 90 kg or 200 lbs otherwise the cart cannot be lifted and emptied. Make sure to put nothing but waste in the waste cart. If other items are included, the cart will not be emptied. Extra waste carts are available for an additional monthly fee. Call for details.
