Residential Garbage & Recycling
The garbage and recycling carts are designed to easily be collected by automated collection vehicles. These vehicles use mechanical arms, operated by the driver in the cab of the truck, that grab, lift, and empty the cart and return it to the ground.
To help the collection stay on schedule, follow these simple steps:
Place items at the curbside by 6 a.m. the day of the scheduled collection service.
Place the wheels of the carts toward the house and the arrow on the cart pointed toward the street.
Place the carts four (4) feet from, one another and objects like mailboxes and parked vehicles.
Bulk Waste & White Goods
Large, bulky items such as a sofa or a range, can be placed at the curb for collection. Residents must contact GFL at 800-535-9533 to schedule a pickup.
If a household's collection day falls on a holiday, collection will occur on the next scheduled collection day. For example, a household receiving Monday/Thursday garbage collection and Monday is a holiday, garbage collection will occur Thursday of that same week. If a holiday falls on the same day of recycling collection, then recycling will not occur for that week. For example, a household receiving recycling collection on Wednesday and Wednesday is a holiday, recycling will be collected the following Wednesday, there will be no collection services on the following holidays:
