Residential Carts

Residential Carts

These are handy 95 gal. wheeled carts, and are typically used for residential use.  However, if you are a small business and would be interested in one of these carts, please call us at (855) 236-5200 and speak to one of our customer service representatives.

Residential Cart Placement

  • Collection begins at 7:30 a.m. on your collection day, so have your cart to the curb by 7:30 a.m. or even the night before. Do not assume your cart will be collected at the same time every week.
  • Carts must be placed on the roadway. They cannot be on a lawn or driveway or they may be refused.
  • Always place the cart with its wheels facing towards the curb or edge of roadway with at least one metre clearance on all sides of your cart. Make sure that there is nothing within one metre in any direction so that the truck can safely grab and empty your cart. This includes vehicles, trees and snow piles. Please be courteous to neighbours and park at least one metre from carts.
  • Carts must be not be loaded higher than the top edge. Cart lids must be closed all the way. Do not place material on lids or around the cart as this may prevent the driver from servicing. 
  • Residential cart service is based on an average weight of 25 kg per cart.
