Niagara Region making service changes to focus on curbside waste collection during COVID-19

Posted by Niagara Region on Tuesday, April 14th, 2020

Niagara Region is making further changes to curbside waste collection this week to allow collection staff from Emterra and Canadian Waste Management to continue to focus on core services. The changes are to prioritize the weekly collection of garbage, recycling and organics and to help our collection staff who are working hard to maintain this essential service for the community.

Effective Monday, April 13, 2020, only three (3) bags/cans of yard waste will be collected per collection day, per eligible residential property (i.e. single dwelling homes and apartments with six units or less). There is also restrictions on leaf and yard waste at the landfill and drop-off depots.

Due to this recent restriction of three bags/cans of yard waste per pick up, bags/cans greater than three will be left behind until the next collection day. Please ensure bags stay intact during this period. Ripped leaf and yard waste bags must be re-bagged or placed in another container to ensure material can be collected.

Curbside collection of large household item/bulk goods for single family homes and apartments with six units or less is now further suspended until May 30. Originally it had been suspended until April 17.

This will help Niagara Region redeploy collection staff and prioritize regular curbside collection of waste, recycling and organics. Residents are encouraged to hold on to your large household items until service resumes.

For those who need to dispose of a large household item due to a residential move out, residents are restricted to one visit per month, per licence plate for the duration of the service changes. Be prepared to provide your address to confirm your property is eligible for this service.

Please note, there are changes to services available at Regional landfill sites and drop-off depots due to COVID-19. They are open but will focus on providing essential services​.

All Regional locations selling/distributing recycling or composting containers are now closed due to COVID-19. For more information on using alternative containers and other waste related services changes due to COVID-19, visit Niagara Waste Management’s COVID-19 service changes webpage.
