Clear Bag Garbage

Clear Bag GarbageThe City of Markham collects garbage every other week on your regular collection day. Please follow your Collection Schedule.

You must put garbage in a clear bag. No black, dark, tinted, coloured, or white bags are accepted.

Set out at the curb by 7 AM on your collection day or after 7 PM the night before. These times can change any time and are found in By-law 32-95.

Important Notice: 

COVID-19 related items like disposable face masks, gloves, wipes including COVID-19 Rapid Test kits go in the garbage.  Do not put in the Blue Box.  For health and safety concerns for both collectors and the processing staff who manually pick the gloves and masks off the sorting line, any Blue Boxes that contain COVID-19 items will be stickered and left behind. The sticker instructs residents to remove these items from the Blue Box and place in clear bag garbage.
