Where does it go?
Not sure where to put your garbage and recycling when the curb is covered in snow? The best place for your waste is in an area which has been cleared of snow, easy to see and access—*not* on or behind a snow bank. Garbage set-out that is further back than 1 metre from the curb may not get collected and for safety reasons, collectors can’t climb over snowbanks to pick up your bins and bags. Thank you for patience and attention to safety during these snowy days. For more information about proper set-outs vist our Curbside Collection page.
