  • Recycling must be set out in blue bags at least 1 metre away from carts.
  • Set out garbage in your black cart and food scraps in your green cart. No extra bags or containers will be collected.
  • Carts must be positioned and spaced according to the diagram on the side of your cart. Review these cart placement tips for more information.
  • Yard waste must be set out in paper or clear plastic yard waste bags or in bundles on seasonal yard waste collection days. You can also add yard waste to your food scraps cart.
