New changes are coming October 1st to the Waste and Recycling program at the Township of North Stormont. By-law No. 46-2018 established a 2-garbage bag limit (up to 22kgs/50 lbs), prohibits loose garbage and implements new rules as to what can go into your recycling bin. Residents are advised to become familiar with the new requirements or your garbage and recycling may not be picked up. Flyers are being sent to all residents advising them of the new rules.
Bag tags can be purchased at the Township’s office if a resident requires more than the 2-bag limit. The Township also issues each property owner an annual waste certificate for up to 500 kg to enter for free of charge GFL’s Waste Handling Facility. The waste certificate is available for pick up at the Township Office Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Waste pick up occurs on a weekly basis. Recycling pick up occurs bi-weekly. Please visit the Township’s Waste and Recycling application on the Township’s website at www.northstormont.ca to find out what day recycling is picked up in your neighbourhood and for more information on what materials can be recycled.

Leaf and Yard waste pick up is only available within the Villages and Hamlets and must be put out at the curb by 7 a.m. November 12th.
