New construction or home renovations could be reasons to stop or restart collection services.
You can opt out temporarily while renovating, demolishing a house or travelling (6 months or more). During your absence the City will remove your bins. Once you are ready to resume service, you will need to opt back in.
If you do not opt out, you will continue to be charged regardless of whether or not waste was set out for collection
When moving, bins remain property of the City and must remain at the property. You do not need to opt out when moving.
If you stop your garbage collection, you will not receive the accompanying free services of recycling, Green Bin organics, Household Hazardous Waste, electronic waste and oversized/metal items pick up.
Renovation waste is not collected at curb. This includes: drywall, doors, lumber, counters, vanities, kitchen cabinets, roof shingles, tiles, etc. Take these items to a Drop-off Depot. Fees will apply.
