Collection Of Waste And Hazardous Waste In Flood-Affected Areas

Ottawa The City of Ottawa’s Solid Waste Services is now collecting garbage from flood-affected areas on a daily basis, seven days per week.


In addition to regular waste, residents can place large appliances, such as stoves, fridges, freezers and air conditioners, as well as electronics (televisions, computers, radios and other corded devices) at the curbside. These items will be removed and recycled appropriately.


Any food should be removed from refrigerators and freezers, and the doors should be removed or secured shut. The City will arrange for the safe removal of refrigerants.


Daily collection of these items will continue until further notice.


Household hazardous waste must not be included with your garbage. The City is arranging for separate collection of household hazardous waste, and will coordinate collection in the affected neighbourhoods shortly.


Residents are asked to safely store these items until a collection schedule is established. More information will be available next week.


Any leaking containers should be placed in a secure container or be double-bagged and labeled with the contents.


For more information on City programs and services, visit or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401). You can also connect with us through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
