Multi-residential waste collection

If you live in an apartment, condominium or townhome, please contact your property owner or manager to ask if or when they plan to consider using Guelph’s three-stream waste collection program.

Here’s how multi-residential property managers or owners can participate in Guelph’s municipal waste collection services:

  • contact us and arrange a site visit to make sure the waste collection access point and process is suitable and safe;
  • submit a waste management plan for approval;
  • sign an agreement to allow the City to collect waste at your property;
  • get insurance for collection on private property
  • distribute a letter, educational materials and promotional supplies to residents to introduce the program; and
  • sort waste into three-streams (organics, recyclables and garbage)
