To make sure your garbage, recycling or green waste gets collected, follow these guidelines:
Set out your bins, grey box, blue box, and yellow bag in the lane or street by 7:00am on collection day.
Place bins so the arrows on the lids points toward the centre of the lane or street (the handle will face your property).
Place your bins so that there is approximately 1 m (3 ft) of space on all sides, and 3 m (10 ft) of clearance above.
Place your yellow bag between your grey box and your blue box, not across the top of them. Allow 1 m (3 ft) between your recycling containers and your Green Bin and garbage bin.
Make sure there are no obstacles in the way of the collection truck.
