Temporary residential garbage drop-off sites now to open Tuesday morning
As no labour disruption is expected to begin until at least noon on Saturday,
July 9 the seven temporary residential garbage drop-off sites will now open on
the next regularly scheduled day for collection, which is Tuesday, July 12 at 7
a.m. The sites will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

In the event of a labour disruption on Saturday, the City’s seven waste
transfer stations will also be open to accept residential waste beginning at 7
a.m. on Sunday, July 10 and remain open 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week until
resumption of services. Commercial waste, with the exception of pre-paid yellow
bags, will be subject to a $95 per tonne tipping fee.

Only in the event of a labour disruption will transfer stations accept
residential waste free of charge (maximum five bags). Residential waste brought
to a transfer station prior to Tuesday at 7 a.m. will be charged regular
tipping fees. All industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) waste will
continue to be charged the $95 per tonne tipping fee unless it is in pre-paid
yellow bags.
