Report littering and illegal dumping of garbage in parks and public or private property. To report an issue, contact 311.

Any waste as defined in the bylaw cannot be dumped on either City of Toronto property or private property.

  • City of Toronto garbage and recycling bins are reserved for litter only. The public is not permitted to place or deposit any household garbage in any City of Toronto receptacle. Any person found dumping can be charged under the Litter and Dumping bylaw.
  • If you have more garbage than will fit in your bin, you can leave extra garbage bags beside your garbage container for collection, as long as a City-issued tag is attached.

The fine is $500, as per Littering and Dumping By-law.
