blue boxAs a reminder to all residents and businesses in Owen Sound, garbage and recycling collection limits still remain in effect.

Garbage bags can be no larger than 89 x 127cm (35 x 50in) and garbage cans no larger than 136 litres (30 imperial Gallons) capacity. Garbage bags or containers are limited to an upset weight restriction of 18kg (40lbs) including the container.

Please continue to use bag tags as per usual. The City does not encourage residents to make the extra trip out from their homes to specifically purchase bag tags. We ask that if you do have them to please continue to use them.

The limit of 4 bags or containers per unit still remains whether residences have a bag tag on their waste or not. Any additional bags will not be collected and bulky waste such as furniture will not be collected.

Recycling must still be sorted in the blue bin or in clear plastic bags.
