Garbage Tags Required for Extra Bags of Black Cart Garbage Starting October

Lisa C. Community, Daily Life, Settlement & Community News, Updates

Starting October 1, 2020, if your black cart is full and you have extra bags of garbage that will not fit, you will need to buy tags to put on extra garbage bags for pickup. If there is no sticker, your collection driver will NOT pick up the bag.

Where to buy garbage tags
How to use the Black Cart tags
  • Fill your black cart first then place extra garbage in a bag and tie closed.
  • Peel off backing and wrap tag around the knot.
  • On collection day, place tagged garbage bags 0.5 metres (2 feet) to the side of your black cart.
