  • To minimize litter and improve collection efficiency, Halton Region now has a Wheeled Cart Collection program for garbage and recycling, free of charge, for BIAs and Commercial Units across Halton.
  • Place your Wheeled Carts at the curb for collection.
  • Garbage must be placed in a standard garbage bag before being placed in a Black Wheeled Cart.
  • All acceptable recyclable material may be mixed and placed in the Blue Wheeled Cart. Do not place any plastic bags in the Blue Wheeled Cart prior to collection.
  • It is the responsibility of the location utilizing the Wheeled Cart to keep the Carts clean. We recommended using hot water and mild detergent or, upon request, Halton Region can provide contact information for cart cleaning services.
  • You may share your carts with residents or other units attached to your business.
