City of Toronto reminds residents about garbage collection in snow conditions

With the snow storm conditions predicted for the Toronto area, the City of Toronto is reminding residents receiving curbside collection that they can still set out their garbage, recycling or Green Bin on their regularly scheduled collection day.

Depending on road conditions, it may take a little longer to service the regular routes, however, it will be business as usual for collection crews.

Residents should also remember to find a clearly visible and accessible area to put out bins for collection. Bins should be as close as possible to the street, without blocking it or the sidewalk. If necessary, shovel out a spot for your bins.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. Toronto’s government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city.
