Cart Placement

  • Carts must be at the curb no later than 7 a.m. on their collection day. Collectors will only pass once down each side of the street, and cannot cross the street or otherwise return to your address if you miss the 7 a.m. deadline. If you are unable get your cart out on time, you bring your garbage / recycling / organic waste to the Langdon Transfer Site, for a fee.
  • Point the arrows on the top of your cart toward the middle of the road.
  • Place your cart on a level surface. In the winter, place your cart with its wheels against the street side of the snow ridge.

  • Allow at least one metre (three feet) of clearance on either side of your cart(s) and between carts.
  • Ensure there is at least three metres (10 ft) of overhead clearance above your cart.
  • All garbage should be well bagged, as dust, ashes and small particles can be inhaled by the collector during disposal. Loose objects can cause face and eye injuries.
