The hamlet of Langdon is the largest urbanized community in the County, and so can benefit from County-coordinated curbside collection. This service includes both waste and recycling collection.

For this enhanced level of service, cost recovery fees are charged to local households. The monthly pickup fees are:

Recycling
Recycling cart $8.82 per month
Garbage
120-litre waste cart $11.18 per month
or
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.

Collection Details

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.

General Guidelines

  • All materials must fit into the carts, with the lid closed. Materials that don’t fit may be saved for the following week, or taken to the Langdon Transfer Site.
  • Items in the black bin must be bagged; items in the blue bin must be loose, with the exception of shredded paper, which should be placed in a clear plastic bag.
  • Carts must be off the street within 18 hours of collection.
  • Sharp objects such as glass, knives, razor blades, and nails should be placed in protective wrapping or a puncture-proof container labeled "sharp". Needles should be returned to the pharmacy where they were purchased for proper disposal.
  • Please write your address on the space provided on the cart to make it easier to identify.
  • Report a missing or damaged cart or change your garbage cart with our online forms.
