  • Both curbside collection and transfer station drop-offs must be made using clear garbage bags;
  • Garbage bags may not contain any recyclable, compostable, or hazardous materials. These materials must instead be directed toward the appropriate recycling, composting, or hazardous material program and
  • One (1) grocery sized privacy bag is allowed in each clear bag to conceal items that residents wish to keep private.

Bags not conforming to these requirements will not be collected at the curb or accepted at the Hall’s Glen Transfer Station. Size limits continue to apply: maximum weight of a bag 18.1 kg (40 lbs) and maximum size is 0.06 cubic meters (2 cubic feet).
