How Many Garbage Bags Can I Put Out Right Now in Hamilton?

Here is an internal memo from one of our staff re garbage bag limits as of now:

As you may have heard a lot about waste pickup changes in Hamilton here’s the straight dope:

This is the waste calendar for EcoHouse (22 Veevers Dr.)  for April 2012 to March 2013:

Please note that from April 2012- March 2013 your home calendar and those of our clients are similar but specific to their addresses.

Please note that on one day per month your home and everyone else’s has a 3 container limit – the other pick up days are 1 container limit.

You still get 3 containers at New years, Victoria Day and Thanksgiving. Therefore in this garbage year you get 15 days when you can put out up to 3 containers of residual waste.

Starting in April 2013 there will be a bag ‘tag’ system coming into play where households will get a bunch of tags to put on their waste so they can put out more than 1 bag per week on any week – but this won’t start til April 2013.
