Starting on this date, opaque garbage bags will not be collected at the curb nor will they be accepted at the Hall’s Glen Transfer Station. Curbside waste collectors and Hall’s Glen Transfer Station attendants have been instructed to only accept household waste which conforms to the size and clear bag requirements set forth in 2017-50 – Garbage By-law (pdf – 136KB).

The Township would like to thank everyone for their support and participation in this program and our mission to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Educational materials, advice and assistance are available from the Township on our website, our Twitter feeds, directly from staff or through the “My Waste” App which is available through the County of Peterborough.
