Setting out your carts

Follow these guidelines when setting out your carts to ensure your waste is collected:

  • Have your materials at the road or curb by 7 a.m. of your collection day
  • Place carts on a level surface within eight feet of the travelled portion of the road, avoiding low hanging branches​
  • Remember the "Rule of 2": Set out carts two feet apart, with two feet between your cart and any other objects
  • Point the arrows on the carts towards the street and handles towards your house​
  • Do not over-stuff carts, fill loosely, ensure lid is fully closed​
  • Do not use bungee cords or other items to keep the cart lids closed

Special instructions for winter

When it snows, follow these instructions for setting out your carts this winter:

  • When shovelling, clear a flat spot at the end of your driveway or at the curb for your carts
  • Place carts within eight feet of the travelled portion of the road, which ensures the automated arm can reach while allowing room for snow clearing​ equipment to pass
  • Don't place carts behind or on top of snowbanks​​​​
