|120-litre waste cart
||$11.18 per month
|240-litre waste cart
||$16.13 per month
To ensure the service is cost-effective, all Langdon residents must participate. The fees are applied to your utility bills.
Placement of Carts
- Carts must be at the curb no later than 7 a.m. on Thursdays. Collectors will only pass once down each side of the street, and cannot cross the street or otherwise return to your address if you miss the 7 a.m. deadline. If you are unable get your cart out on time, you can bring it to the Langdon transfer site, for a fee.
- Make sure the arrows on the top of your cart point toward the middle of the road.
- Place your cart on a level surface. In the winter, place your cart with its wheels against the street side of the snow ridge.
- Allow at least one metre (three feet) clearance on either side of the cart and allow 30 centimetres (one foot) from any obstruction behind the cart.
- Please ensure there are no overhead obstructions within three metres (10 ft) above cart.
- All waste should be well bagged, as dust, ashes and small particles can be inhaled by the collector during disposal. Loose objects can cause face and eye injuries.
