Small

120 L

You will receive a large garbage cart unless you submit a request for the small garbage cart.

Answer the two questions below to find out which size garbage cart will be best for you:

1. How many people live in your household?

A household is defined as people who live in the same dwelling together.

2. On average, how many bags or cans of garbage does your household put out for collection each week?

Count only items containing garbage or food waste, do not include your recycling.

Use the largest full container size.

  • Do not include all the individual bags inside.
  • For example, if you typically put out a full garbage can with two regular black bags inside, count only the garbage can.
