Winter placement for waste bins

Keep waste collection bins out of the path of snow plows

Always set your waste bins 1 m (3 ft.) from the road or curb after a snowfall. This gives snow plows enough room to pass.

A bin placed too close to the road could get hit or crushed by a snow plow. It could also get knocked over by snow being pushed to the side of the road.

Report any damage caused by snow plows. Damaged bins will be fixed or replaced free of charge.

If a snow plow partially buries your bin, your waste items should still be collected.
