Garbage is collected every week.
All waste streams should be at the curb by 7 a.m. on your scheduled collection day, but no earlier than 5 p.m. the day before.
1 bag a week. Stick a tag on extra bags.
One (1) untagged bag/container of garbage will be collected per week. Any garbage that exceeds the limit must have a bag tag attached.
Garbage must be placed at the curb:
Non-transparent (opaque) bags will not be collected. Why clear bags?
Each bag/container may container two (2) opaque privacy bags, no larger than 51 x 56 cm (20 x 22 in).
Each bag/container must not exceed 20 kg (44 lbs), 79 x 107 cm (31 x 42 in), and 125 L (33 gal).

Broken glass and other sharp items should be placed in a rigid container (no larger than 0.6m/2ft in any dimension), sealed closed and clearly labelled “Sharp Object”. Please place this container beside or on top of your garbage bag/container.
Fireplace ashes should be left to cool for at least 10 days before placing them at the curb. Contact GFL at 1.888.941.3345 ext. 1 or firstname.lastname@example.org before placing ashes at the curb. Another option is to spread ashes in gardens for fertilizer.
