Town to start enforcement in January 2021

AURORA, ON – Starting in October, the Town of Aurora will be educating residents on the residential waste limits. Aurora residents can place up to three-bags or containers for pickup every other week on regularly scheduled collection days. We would like to thank residents for doing their part in helping to reduce waste in our community.

As outlined in By-law #5590-14 section 4.16, the number of items put out for collection from any premise on any collection day shall not exceed a total of three garbage bags and five bulky items. Bulky items include non-metal items such as furniture, mattresses, box springs, plastic lawn furniture, toilets (separated) and carpeting.

All garbage should be placed in a Town approved container or a black plastic bag. Garbage bags or reusable containers with contents should not exceed 23 kg (50 lbs). Garbage containers cannot exceed 1.33 litres (25 gal). Effective January 2021, garbage bags will not be collected beyond the Town limit.

Waste beyond the three-bag limit will have a non-compliant sticker placed on it and will not be picked up. If you have extra waste, please hold onto the items until the next waste collection week or drop it off at the closest waste depot transfer station.
