Curbside Garbage Collection

The Importance of 6:00 a.m. Curbside Garbage Collection and Recycling
The Township Garbage and Recycling Contractors complete routes beginning at 6:00 a.m., however routing changes that could affect collection times can often occur for a number of reasons; including but not limited to weather, road closures and vehicle breakdowns. If items are not curbside by 6:00 a.m. the Township cannot guarantee collection.

Residents may set out as many garbage bags as they desire, however only one bag may be untagged. All additional bags must be tagged. Commercial and industrial users will be entitled to three untagged bags.  All additional bags must be tagged.  

Garbage and recycling must be clearly visible and placed as follows: 

  • Township Roads – Mailbox side
  • Provincial, County and Townline Roads – End of driveway

Maximum bag size is 26″x36″ and must not exceed 22 kilograms per bag. 
Garbage boxes or bins must have a visible marker to indicate “full” or “empty”.
Garbage tags may be purchased at the Township Municipal Office or at various retail locations throughout the Township at a cost of $2.50 per bag tag:

  • Variety Plus Convenience Store, Chatsworth
  • 6 & 10 Convenience, Chatsworth
  • Esso Gas Station, Chatsworth
  • Williamsford General Store, Williamsford
  • Holland Centre Gas Bar, Holland Centre  

Update – Property Taxes & Municipal Payments

Council, at the June 17, 2020 regular Council Meeting, passed a resolution to continue with the waving of penalty and interest on all taxes, water, and general accounts receivable for a subsequent three-month period of July, August, and September 2020.

At this time, the 2020 property tax instalment due dates remain unchanged. However, we will not be adding penalties or interest charges to outstanding property taxes or water billings for the months of March (usually applied April 1), April (usually applied May 1) and May (usually applied June 1). 

Residents who are able, are urged to stay on top of amounts owed to minimize future financial hardship once this crisis passes.  

Township staff are responding to messages as soon as possible given the office closure and if you wish to discuss your accounts, please reach out and leave a voice or email message. 

Based on federal and provincial directives, Council will continue to review options to provide relief where possible and will revisit the timelines in mid-June as necessary. 

We thank you for your understanding during this time.
