The Region of Waterloo recently released a list of significant changes to curbside waste collection and we will be reviewing them and letting you know how they affect you and your household.
The following changes will come into effect in March 2017:
Collection Changes in Waterloo
Garbage collection, which was weekly, will now be collected once every two weeks. This may be one of the biggest changes to the regional curbside waste collection and you may find yourself or your household having to dispose of garbage more frequently than the regular bi-weekly pick up.
Bi-weekly, the Region of Waterloo will pick up three bulky items or appliances that do not fit in standard size garbage bins. These items would include stoves, couches, dressers and other furniture or appliances. If you’re moving and exceed the limit or simply unsure of how you’re going to remove heavy furniture pieces and appliances, JUSTJUNK offers same or next day service. Our staff members will take care of all the heavy lifting, loading and disposal of furniture and appliances from anywhere on the property, while also diverting up to 60% of junk we remove from homes by donating and recycling as many items as possible.
Rural areas of Townships such as North Dumfries, Wellesley, Wilmot and Woolwich, which offered blue box pick up every two weeks and no green bin pick up, will now have both picked up weekly. Although considered rural, JustJunk can service these locations for the same low cost fees with an up-front written estimate!
As of March 6th, 2017, there will be a 4 garbage bag or container limit. If garbage exceeds this limit, each bag or container will require a garbage pick up tag.
