Reduce and reuse

In order to lessen the amount of garbage you have to throw out, try reducing the amount of waste you generate. Actions like reusing shopping bags, composting, or bringing a coffee mug instead of disposable mugs are all ways that you can reduce and reuse! More tips on reduce and reuse can be found at Wasteline.ca.

Don't get left behind

Garbage collection fees are calculated using the Bag Tag program. You are only expected to pay for as much garbage you throw out.  When garbage and recycling isn't set out right, it costs more money to collect and process.  For more details on how to properly clean and set out materials, visit Wasteline.ca
