Please do your part this summer to protect our collectors!
  • Make sure boxes are in good condition and not visibly damaged.
  • Check for wasps, rats or other animals & secure container from such animals.
  • Clean debris in bottom of bins.
  • Between April 1 & Nov 30, if you do not have a garbage box located within 5 meters of the road’s edge, garbage bags must be covered when placed out for collection.
