Clear Bag Garbage
The 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.
You need to put your garbage at your curb by 7 AM on your collection day. Or, you can put it at the curb after 7 PM the night before. These times can change any time and are found in By-law 32-95.
Fall is perfect time to change your furnace filter. Place your old, paper filter in clear bag garbage, better yet, consider switching to a reusable, washable one. Made with solid aluminum or plastic frames, these filters can be vacuumed off and washed with water regularly.
