Reviews from Cart Users Across Ontario
The County is rolling out an automated cart collection system on November 1, 2021. This system is an easy and safe solution to curbside waste collection services.
Your carts may arrive as early as August; however, remember, do not put your carts out until November 1st.
On average, these vertical carts use 50% less floor space to store waste (compared to equivalent amounts in current open bin/bag system)
Consolidate a variety of smaller bins, bags and containers into three carts
Good for the environment with more room for organics
Lids on all carts protect against windblown litter and impacts from critters
Cut down on lifting and trips to the curb! With wheels and ergonomic handles, just roll out two carts each week
Safer for everyone with touchless automated collection
Proven and preferred in many other communities
Carts will also ensure continuity of collection service and help to reduce potential for wide spread collection impacts previously experienced
