Alert message

A special collection of waste, old furniture and anything not considered as household waste with the exception of hazardous waste and construction/demolition waste will take place according to the following schedule.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we ask that you comply with strict public health measures and that you limit to a minimum interaction with the employees during the collection activities. We also ask that you contact Gilles R. Mayer Sanitation Ltd. by phone (613) 632-2581 rather than in person for any questions and/or comments.
The rubbish must be deposited close to the sidewalk or the curb, but not on the street, during the weekend preceding the date of collection, no later than 6:30 a.m. on Monday morning. The collection will be completed ONLY ONCE PER STREET, but may be done on ANY DAY of the week in accordance with the schedule below. Furthermore, the contractor will complete the waste collection by types of waste. This means that the contractor will collect the totality of all acceptable waste in many trips to your property. Therefore, do not be surprised if one particular type of waste was collected but not another. At the end of your collection week, all acceptable waste will have been collected.
Please note that the special collection will be done from the EAST END to the WEST END of town.
Please note that the construction and demolition materials as well as tree branches are not considered as waste. In the event that you wish to dispose of these materials, contact your local sanitation provider to schedule the pick-up at your expense.
Branches of hedge trimmings will only be picked up if they are tied in bundles not exceeding 6’ long by 2’ in diameter. Also, please note that old cars are not considered as acceptable waste.
Tires will no longer be picked up but can be deposited free of charge at Gilles R. Mayer Sanitation Ltd., 194 County Road 17, Hawkesbury from Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Please note that your contact information will be requested at the time of the deposit for validation with the Ontarian Ministry of Environment.
