Enhanced Burlington waste collection due to flooding

To help Burlington residents impacted by the recent flood, Halton Region has lifted the garbage bag and bulk item limit that Burlington residents can put at the curb. If you live in an area that experienced flooding, please place your garbage and acceptable bulk material at the curb as soon as possible and leave it at the curb until collected. Additional waste collection trucks will be in the neighbourhoods most impacted by flooding to help with garbage and bulk collection.
