Residential Collection Times

Although you may be accustomed to your garbage or recycling being collected at a given time of the day, please note that there are numerous factors (road, traffic and weather conditions and changes to driver assignments, to name a few) which can prevent us from being at the same place at the same time each week.

To ensure that you don’t miss our truck, please have your garbage  at the curb by 8:00 am and don’t be alarmed if  our driver doesn’t arrive at  the ‘usual’ time.  Do call us if  he hasn’t come by  3:00 pm so we look into the situation and either return to your neighborhood or make other arrangements.

We appreciate your patience & cooperation.

No Bungee Cords Please!

Please unhook any bungee cords or tie-downs you may be using to secure the lid of your garbage can BEFORE setting it out on collection day. 

The hazard of a bungee cord is in the sudden release of a large amount of  stored energy. When a worker releases a bungee cord, particularly one that’s been over-stretched, the free end and hook can recoil at speeds  up to 100 kilometers per hour , causing significant injury on impact.  Statistics show that the majority of bungee cord injuries involve the face and are becoming an increasingly common cause of severe and penetrating eye injuries.  Thankfully, to date, none of our workers has sustained an injury but there have been close calls.

Direct Disposal is committed to the prevention of workplace injuries and we request & appreciate your cooperation.

Residential Garbage Weight Resrictions

Your garbage man lifts and carries hundreds of garbage bags and cans during the course of his work day.  This very demanding work can be back-breaking.  Please help protect him from injury by keeping your garbage container within the weight limits set out by municipal bylaws – 20 kg or 44 lbs per bag/can.  If it weighs more than this, a simple solution is to separate your refuse into two cans or bags.  Although, in most cases, you’ll have to purchase a tag for the additional bag, doing so will ensure that nothing gets left behind.

Thank you so much for your cooperation!

Proudly introducing fully-automated collection to the Coast!

As part of our ongoing efforts to reduce our carbon footprint and increase safety and efficiency, we are moving to a fully-automated method of servicing our waste and recycling carts.

To facilitate this procedure, please …

  • Place your cart in the same spot where our driver left it on your last collection day
  • Ensure that the front of your cart is facing the roadway and the handle is facing the curb

Thank you for your support & cooperation!

No Paper Towels in Your Blue Cart Please

All participants in our curbside recycling program should take note that paper towels, either used or clean, should NOT be put in your blue carts.  We apologize for any inconvenience that this  unfortunate omission in our sort guide may have caused.
