Frequently Asked Questions
Why was my garbage not picked up?
It is possible you exceeded the bag limit, which is currently two bags/containers. It could be that your garbage is in a container that exceeds the sizes laid out in the Township’s Waste Management By-law. It is also possible you put out something that the garbage truck will simply not pick up. Items including furniture and appliances, tires, liquids, demolition and construction material, and hazardous waste such as batteries and propane tanks will not be collected. When your garbage is left behind, the driver will leave a “Dos and Don’ts” handout describing why your garbage was left behind.
