Waste Collection Schedule

 

Keeping Collectors Healthy

The City of Hamilton waste collection crews are still out on the streets, picking up green bins, blue boxes and garbage. However, Residents can hold on to their Leaf & Yard waste until collection resumes or take it to a Community Recycling Centre for free.

While crews have their own health and safety procedures in place, residents are asked to help protect them on the job:

  • Place used tissues and napkins in the garbage, rather than the green bin.
  • Where possible, Please use liner bags (either paper or certified compostable plastic) in the green bin.
  • Please ensure that all material placed in garbage bins is bagged, not kept loose.
  • Please follow the advice of Public Health and keep a physical social distance of at least two metres from waste collection staff.

These steps will help protect the health of crews who handle thousands of bins, bags and boxes each week.
