WHEN IS CURBSIDE WASTE PICK-UP?

Curbside waste pick-up takes place on Tuesday of every week. All waste containers must be placed out before 7:00 am and may not be left out the night before.

 

DO I NEED TO PURCHASE GARBAGE TAGS?

Yes, the township current uses a Pay-As-You-Throw system for waste collection and at the Terrace Bay Landfill. At a cost of $2.00 per tag, it must be attached to the inside of each approved container on top of all the garbage, easily visible to Public Works staff.
Garbage Tags can be purchased at the Terrace Bay Municipal Office, Terrace Bay Public Library and the Drifters Esso Convenience Store.

 

WHAT ARE THE APPROVED CONTAINERS FOR WASTE COLLECTION?

To prevent wildlife issues, a waste container must be used for curbside waste pick-up. For a container to be approved it must be constructed from plastic or metal and have a tight-fitting lid, carrying handles and capable of being sanitized. Approved containers will have a maximum volume of 121 litres (or less) and weigh no more than 18 kgs when collected.

 

CAN I DROP OFF MY WASTE AT THE LANDFILL?

Yes, you can drop off your waste at the Terrace Bay Landfill—there is a cost associated for residents and businesses. The rules and requirements for waste are the same for both businesses and residents.

Go to terracebay.ca/landfill for more information.

 

WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HOUSEHOLD OR COMMERCIAL/INDUSTRIAL HAZARDOUS WASTE?

The township holds a Household Hazardous Waste Day during Residential Spring Clean-Up Week for residential household hazardous waste.

We ask residents to not include their household hazardous waste amoung regular waste.

The township does not pick-up, or allow the drop-off, of commercial/industrial hazardous waste. An alternative method must be found through another third-party.

 

I AM A BUSINESS; WHAT CAN I DO WITH MY WASTE?

A timed waste pickup system is available for all non-residential waste (for commercial, institutional, industrial and multi-residential entities). The timed waste pickup occurs on Tuesday of each week. The business pays a fee based on the length of time required for Public Works staff to complete the collection.

Businesses are not obligated to register for timed pickup. If your businesses only generates a small amount of waste each week, you may purchase garbage tags and participate in curbside waste pick-up.
