Garbage Truck
Garbage, Recycling, & Lawn Waste Pickup 

Our area uses the Green Cart system, recycling waste (bottles, plastics, paper, cardboard, etc). Pick up is every Friday (Saturday if a holiday week). Garbage is picked up every two weeks, also on Friday, as are bagged leaves and bundled branches and twigs in season. In the Fall, the Town schedules curbside leaf collection. In the Winter, the Town provides Christmas tree curbside pickup. Green Carts and blue bins are available free from Halton Region (see Government below for phone number).
