On collection day, give your bins some space. To make sure your bins are collected, follow these guidelines:
- Set the bins out by 7am.
- Make sure to close the lid. Don't let the bins overflow so much that the lid can't close properly.
- Place the bins so the arrows on the lids point toward the centre of the lane or the street.
- Space your green bin and garbage so there is a least 1 m (3 feet) of space on all sides, and 3.5 m (11.5 feet) of clearance above. Your recycling boxes and bags should be placed 1 m from your garbage or green bin and in such a way that collection crews can access them.
- Bring the bins back onto your property after they are emptied.
