Safety tips

Give Waste a New Life

  • Only place acceptable materials in the carts (check the sorting guide)
  • Close the lid before moving a cart.
  • Pull carts over snow, like a sled rather than pushing like a plough.
  • Do not sit, climb or stand on the cart.
  • Children should not play in or around the carts.
  • Do not place or store carts on elevated platforms, including snowbanks greater than 30 centimetres or one foot in height.
  • Do not place carts on a steep slope.
  • Do not exceed the load rating shown on the lid of the cart.
