Free Guelph Waste app helps you sort too

Download the free Guelph Waste app or sign up for reminders

Guelph, Ont., March 8, 2018 – The City of Guelph is making it easier for residents to get information about waste sorting and collection schedules through a new mobile app.

The free, easy-to-use Guelph Waste app for Apple and Android devices is now available in app stores. Residents who can’t use the app can still sign up for waste collection reminders at

“This new app is great for anyone living or working in Guelph,” says Heather Connell, manager of Integrated Services with Solid Waste Resources. “It takes just one minute to sign up for waste reminders, and the app gives you on-the-go sorting info at your fingertips.”

By signing up, residents can:

  • Get collection day reminders by email, phone call, text message and/or Twitter
  • Find out how to sort waste items using the Waste Wizard search function
  • Download their waste collection schedule to their personal Google, iCal or Microsoft Outlook calendar
  • Get a PDF copy of their waste collection schedule to print

Residents who already get waste collection reminders were automatically upgraded to the new tool on March 1 and will keep getting reminders as usual.

Residents without smartphones or internet access can sign up for telephone reminders by calling 519-767-0598.
