Cart collection during snow parking bans or street cleaning
If you have front street collection for your Blue, Black and Green Carts, there may be times when your service will change due to snow parking bans or street cleaning.
How to place your cart during snow parking bans
During a snow route parking ban, place your bins on the sidewalk or grass boulevard next to the curb. If your cart is picked up from a back lane, put it in the same place as normal.
- Leave at least one metre between the cart and nearby objects such as parked cars.
- Don’t place carts behind or on top of snow banks.
- Clear snow off your blue cart lid and keep the lid closed so that paper and other recyclables stay dry.
How to place your cart during street cleaning
During spring street cleaning in your community, place your cart on the end of your driveway or grass boulevard next to the curb on the week your street is scheduled for cleaning.
If your cart is picked up from a back lane, put it in the same place as normal.
Make sure to leave at least one metre between the cart and surrounding objects.
Regular cart placement
At all other times, follow the regular rules for cart placement.
