Garbage Bag Limit and Tags

In the Town of Stouffville, we will pick up a maximum of three garbage bags or containers on garbage collection days. If you have more than three bags or containers, you need to buy a garbage sticker. There is a limit of six (6) bags per collection.

Use black or green bags only, not clear. The maximum weight per bag is 50 pounds. 

If using a container, the maximum size is 125 litres, and 50 pounds. All material in the container must be contained in bags and not be overflowing. 


Garbage bag tags cost $3.00 (tax included) per bag or container and allow you to put out more than three garbage bags or containers to a maximum of six (6) bags per collection.
