Collection Reminders

Place your garbage and recycling out the night before your scheduled collection day. Place your garbage and recycling bin on the curb or on your driveway - never on the road! Keep your container at the curb until the end of the day if it hasn’t been collected. Sometimes the timing of GFL's arrival changes. 

Place your garbage in an acceptable garbage container. Refer to the Collection Calendar for details regarding basic collection requirements.
