We are updating our Waste Management Bylaw to ensure it:
- Meets new multi-residential waste collection needs;
- Improves overall service efficiency and delivery;
- Removes references to the old manual bagged waste collection system, and
- Aligns with the recommendations of the Solid Waste Resources business service review.
Proposed bylaw changes
The Waste Management Bylaw review will suggest updates to the following parts of the bylaw:
- Multi-residential waste collection
- Waste cart sizes
- Materials permitted in the green cart (e.g. grass clippings)
- Waste collection from facilities that generate biomedical waste
We wanted to hear from you – Results are in!
As part of the Waste Management Bylaw update, we gathered feedback from Guelph residents through an online and telephone survey between November 14 and December 12 in 2018.
See survey results in the below reports
Your input helped us understand your thoughts and concerns about:
- Bylaw priorities and waste collection services standards
- The proposed curbside ban of grass clippings
- Services available at the Waste Resource Innovation Centre
- Our overall services and operations
Thank you for participating.
Service level updates
In addition to the bylaw update, we will also use the online and telephone surveys to gather feedback and consider updates to existing waste services, specifically:
- Household Hazardous Waste Depot hours of operation
