Have We Missed Your Bin?
If an item is not collected for reasons other than those listed below, please contact Windsor Disposal Services at 519-944-8009.
Missed collections are upsetting, but there is usually a reason why material was not collected as expected.
To ensure your waste is collected, please ensure it is:
Placed curbside the NIGHT BEFORE your scheduled collection day
Within the weight limit of no more than 20 kg (45 lbs)
Not hidden behind a vehicle, snow bank or other obstruction
Free of prohibited content (e.g. hazardous construction/renovation waste or animal waste)
** Please DO NOT place broken glass and/or sharp objects like knives in your garbage bins/bags. This poses a serious health risk to our employees**
Other reasons for missed collections can be:
Unacceptable containers, ie. Plastic shopping bags
Not scheduled for collection that particular day
Non-collectable waste i.e. computer equipment, electronics, animal or medical waste, concrete, appliances and/or metal items.
What kind of items should not be included in garbage?
Items which must not be included in garbage are:
• Hazardous waste such as motor oil, propane tanks and solvents
• Large electronic devices such as fridges and freezers
• Tree roots and manure
• Metal auto parts
What should I do to help my garbage collector?
Clean your area if it is covered with ice and snow. Do not place waste on snow piles.
What is a sanitary landfill?
It is a low-lying waste area between layers of soil. It has an added layer at the bottom to prevent water from contaminating waste.
How can I manage waste at home?
Keep separate waste containers for dry and wet waste. Dispose of the waste in separate waste bags to ensure it does not mix up.
