Toronto residents in houses will receive their waste collection schedule as the last page of their utility bill or through a separate mailing, and a Waste Management Guide will be mailed to all houses, apartments and condos by the end of December 2023.

2024 Collection Schedules

  • Starting in September 2023, collection schedules will be sent as the last page of the utility bill and will feature information about proper waste set out on the back.
  • Those who do not receive utility bills to their home, or are not scheduled to receive a utility bill before January 2024, will have their collection schedule mailed to them.
  • The 2024 schedules will be available online and via the lookup tool in late December 2023.
  • Residents will also be able to access their collection schedules and get reminders about what waste to set out when with the TOwaste app.
  • Schedules with larger print and icons are also being created and will be available upon request by contacting 311.

Additional Ways to Get Waste Management Information

The City recognizes that not all people consume information in the same way or format and remains committed to providing key waste information to residents through a variety of different channels. In addition to being provided in print, collection schedules and information about proper waste set out and sorting, waste reduction and Drop-Off Depots is available online or by calling 311. The City also provides residents with waste management information through the TOwaste app, public education campaigns, social media, media materials, City newsletters and various outreach and stakeholder engagement activities.
