Same waste collection service, different trucks for Etobicoke area starting July 1
Miller Waste Systems Inc. will begin residential curbside waste collection for approximately 65,400 households in the Etobicoke area (Toronto District 1) starting July 1.

While new vehicles and collection crews will service the single-family homes in the area, residents are reminded:
• There will be no change in service.
• Current collection days remain the same. Residents should continue to follow the schedule in their Collection Calendar, which determines what materials should be put out each week.
• All materials (garbage, recycling, organic materials, bulky items and yard waste) and collection methods remain the same.
• All materials should be put out by 7 a.m., as the time of collection may vary.
• If materials have not been collected by 6 p.m., residents should contact 311 to report any service issues.

At its July 2014 meeting, City Council authorized Solid Waste Management Services to enter into an agreement with Miller Waste Systems Inc. to provide the service for six years from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2021.
