City Arbitrarily Waives Garbage Container By-Law

(WINDSOR, ON) – Windsor City Council is giving residents a two-week break from the hard-sided container by-law. The motion was made at last Monday’s council meeting to suspend enforcement of the by-law for two collection periods following Christmas, recognizing that the holidays usually mean more garbage.

Any garbage bags, weighing less than 44 pounds can be placed on the ground beside garbage containers for the period of December 27 to January 10. Do not place bags on top of pails.

Following those two weeks, residents will once again be required to use a hard-sided container, commencing the week of January 12.

Residents are reminded that collection crews will not pick up furniture, appliances, electronics, loose material, or household chemical waste.

The Public Drop Off Depot located at Central and E. C. Row is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 3:45 pm and Saturday’s from 9:00 am to 12:45 pm for the self disposal of garbage, red and blue box recyclables, cardboard, appliances, renovation material, tires, and yard waste.  Tipping fees may apply.

The Depot is closed December 24, 25, 26, and January 1.
