The City of Windsor is temporary changing restrictions on garbage pick up.

Starting Monday, April 20 and running until May 15th, 2020 every household can place up to two extra garbage bags (not in hard-sided containers) with their garbage on their scheduled collection day.

While hard-sided containers are always preferred, during this special month of collections, crews will pick up a maximum of two extra bags that are not in pails.

Each bag should:

  • Be strong enough to securely hold its contents
  • Weigh no more than 20 kilograms (44 pounds)
  • Be closed or tied at the top
  • Be placed next to your garbage pails (not on top of the pail)
  • Not contain sharp objects, paint, batteries or any other household chemical waste

Residents are reminded that all waste is to be set out by 6am on scheduled collection days. Pickup may be somewhat delayed with the addition of more garbage to be collected on the route.

Residents are also reminded that bulk collection remains available and are asked to call 311 to place a request for this service.

“I know that many residents are trying to stay busy – taking the time to clean out their basements, attics and garages, as we are all staying close to home” said Mayor Drew Dilkens. “This is just another way that the City of Windsor can make it just a little bit easier for residents at this challenging time.”
