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.
Residents may prepare any leftover ice storm wood debris according to the set out directions for the City's regular bi-weekly leaf and yard waste collection that began on March 11. Large fallen branches from public trees on public property or any fallen or hanging limbs that are potential hazards on streets or in City parks should be reported to 311. Appropriate action will be taken to remove them. There will not be another city-wide wood debris removal sweep.
Cylinders and tanks are not collected curbside. If they can't be refilled, take them to a City Drop-off Depot for safe disposal. If you live in an apartment or condo, please check with your property manager about proper disposal. It is illegal to leave empty propane tanks in a park.
