3 Bag or Container Limit

Town of Aurora residents can place up to three (3) bags or containers out for pick up every other week on regularly scheduled collection days. All garbage should be placed in a Town approved container or black plastic bag.

The total of three (3) bags or container limit must be no more than 133 litres or 50 pounds maximum. No loose material will be accepted and all items must be bagged and tied.

As outlined in Bylaw #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 (3) garbage bags and shall not exceed a total of five (5) bulky items.

Effective January 2021, bags will not be collected beyond the three (3) bag limit. Additional waste beyond the limit will have a non-compliant sticker placed on it and will be left behind.

If you have additional waste, please hold onto the items until the next waste collection week or drop off at the closest waste depot transfer station.

For more information on the closest depot, hours of operation and fees, please visit the York Region's Waste Depots webpage.
