Garbage Removal

Curb-side pick-up takes place throughout the core early every Tuesday and Friday. Garbage should be placed in appropriate bags and left at the curb at closing time on Monday and Thursday. Each bag must have a city garbage tag attached. These tags can be purchased at City Hall and the convenience stores listed below.

For any overflowing garbage cans in the core, please call Public Works at 519-271-0250 x259 or after hours at 519-271-0820.
