The City continues to phase in delivery of the new Green Bins with distribution to the neighbourhoods in the southern part of District 3 (east of Yonge, west of Victoria Park and south of Eglinton) starting on August 22, 2017.
New bins will be delivered to one collection route per day, which represents approximately 1,500 households. Distribution for the entire area will take about three months to complete. Don't be alarmed if you see residents in your area with new bins and you have not received one – yours is coming. On the same day that you get your new Green Bin, the old one will be taken away and recycled. If your old bin is not removed, please set it out EMPTY on your next collection day and it will be picked up. Those who miss this second opportunity may contact 311 to arrange removal.
