If you have too much organic material for your green bin, you can buy additional bins online by completing a Blue and Green Bin Purchase Form.  Only Town issued green bins will be accepted for collection. A large outdoor green bin costs $37 plus HST, while a smaller indoor container costs $8 plus HST.

Using your green bin

Please follow these guidelines when using a green bin:

  • Close and lock your green bin lid when you set it out for collection
  • Don’t put out your small indoor container at the curb for collection
  • Don’t put yard waste in your green bin
  • Make sure your green bin isn’t overflowing and doesn’t weight more than 50 lbs
  • Make sure that all organic waste is securely tied in a compostable bag
  • Only use Town-issued green bins
  • Remove all bungee cords before setting green bins out for collection

Compostable bags

All green bin waste must be contained in compostable bags that are securely closed in the green bin. Certified compostable bags will have a compostable logo on the packaging. Paper bags are also compostable.
