2011 Garbage Tags mailed out

2011 Garbage Tags mailed out

Solid Waste Management Services has commenced the mail out of Garbage Bag Tags to all residential properties on City of Toronto curbside collection.  Residents should receive these new tags by the first week of January 2011.  The green tags issued last year expire on December 31, 2010.

We will be providing two (2) free Garbage Bag Tags (colour orange) valid from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011.  These Garbage Bag Tags are to be used when the volume of garbage set out on collection day is greater than the volume of the resident’s City-issued Garbage Bin.

Please refer to the attached link for further information and sample of 2011 Garbage Bag Tags:


In early 2011 City Council will consider the proposal for the continued annual mail out of four (4) free Garbage Bag Tags beyond 2011.  If approved, two (2) additional Garbage Bag Tags that also expire December 31, 2011 will be mailed to residents prior to June 2011.

Should a property owner currently receiving curbside collection wish to report that they have not received their tags, they should file a service request through 311 for “tags not received”.  311 Service Requests will be routed to the Solid Waste Management Services for investigation.  Garbage Bag Tags will be mailed to the property owner’s mailing address and it is the responsibility of the owner to forward the tags to tenants, if applicable.
