95-gallon Garbage bins available

Each garbage bin is $96.05 plus annual collection fees of $806.00 (once a week collection) or $403.00 (for bi-weekly collection). Using a garbage bin means your business no longer has to purchase yellow commercial garbage bags. Order by calling the Yellow Bag Hotline at 416-338-3400.
