Multi-residential waste collection

We’re expanding waste collection to provide greater flexibility and access to City waste collection service for multi-residential properties within Guelph.

Expanding multi-residential waste collection using front-end loading garbage trucks will help us:

  • serve a greater proportion of the existing multi-residential community
  • provide waste services for new multi-residential properties
  • provide waste collection to multi-residential properties that were inaccessible by standard trucks
  • capture more recyclables and organics
  • reduce the amount of waste going to landfills
  • educate the multi-residential community about correct waste sorting

We will roll out this waste collection program starting in 2019.

To be eligible for City waste collection at your multi-residential property, you must:

  • 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 authorization to allow the City to collect waste at your property;
  • get insurance for collection on private property; and
  • sort waste into three-streams (organics, recyclables and garbage)

We have materials you can share with your residents to educate them about correct waste sorting.
