Waste & Garbage Disposal Guidelines

  • Curbside pick-up of waste & recycling occurs Tuesday of each week. Items should be placed by the roadside no later than 7:00am to ensure pick-up. The collection of recyclables alternates between paper/cardboard and plastic/metal/glass products each week.

  • Your garbage bag should not weigh more than forty (40) lbs when full.
  • Place recyclables loosely in a recycling ‘Blue Box’, available for purchase for $10 at the Deseronto Town Hall or at most household product retailers. Grey boxes are no longer available for purchase, please use a blue box for your grey box (paper) items.
  • Flatten for improved space, remove staples & tape, bundle cardboard no larger than 36′ X 24″ X 8″ and place it beside your ‘Blue Box’.
  • All excess food/liquids must be cleaned off recyclable products.
  • Your ‘Blue Box’ should not weigh more than thirty (30) lbs when full.
  • Return empty alcoholic beverage glass bottles for refund to the ‘Beer Store - Empty Bottle Dealer’.
