Instead of having one day to clean out your house and yard you will have three months to take advantage of this service. Coupons will be effective from June 1st
to August 31st
, 2015. This will enable all residents to take advantage of the program.This program ensures less waste goes to the landfill and more discards will be reused.WHAT can I drop off?
Each household is limited to ONE truck load containing up to 450 kgs of acceptable items
, including EPR items. A list of restricted items can be found on the back of the coupon or below. Restricted items include:
