Recycling, Organics & Garbage

Solid Waste Management provides innovative waste management services to residents, businesses and visitors within the City of Toronto, creating environmental sustainability, promoting diversion and maintaining a clean city.

Family Day holiday service impact

For the most part, it is business as usual. However, all Drop-off Depots at City Transfer Stations will be closed on Family Day, re-opening on Tuesday. Multi-Residential apartment/condo buildings on City service will see their collection shift from Monday to Tuesday and Tuesday to Wednesday (rest of the week unchanged).  Details (pdf) are available, including the updated policy on how to get containers used to participate in certain waste diversion programs.

Ward 42 by-election sign recycling

Acting on the City's goal to divert waste from landfill, markets are available to recycle the three main styles of election signs. Candidates running in the Ward 42 municipal by-election may drop off used or unused election signs for recycling at the Scarborough Transfer Station until Friday, March 17, 2017. Learn more in the letter sent to candidates.
