2018 Recycling & Garbage Guides!


Please be advised that you should receive your 2018 Recycling & Garbage Guide along with bright green trash tags beginning Wednesday, February 21st through Thursday, March 1st via Canada Post. The green trash tags are effective as of April 1, 2018 with the current pink tags expiring March 31, 2018. The pink trash tags will continue to be accepted during the month of April to ensure residents have received their new tags.

As in previous years, residents can request an additional 14 green trash tags to be picked up or mailed to them for use between April 2018 and March 2019.  This can be accomplished by either visiting a Municipal Service Centre or City Hall, calling 905-546-CITY(2489) or by requesting them electronically at www.hamilton.ca/trashtags.

The City of Hamilton Waste Management App assists you with everything you need to know about garbage and recycling.
