Niagara Region introducing Miller Waste, one of two new waste collection contractors starting in October

Niagara Region is starting a new waste collection contract on Oct. 19, 2020, which will see two new waste collection companies serving the community. The new collection contract is split into two areas:
  • GFL Environmental Inc. will be the contractor for Collection Area One (Grimsby, Lincoln, Pelham, Thorold, Wainfleet and West Lincoln) and
  • Miller Waste Systems Inc. will be the contractor for Collection Area Two (Fort Erie, Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Port Colborne, St. Catharines and Welland.)
Niagara Region invites the media to attend a photo op / media event this Wednesday, Sept. 23 in Niagara-on-the-Lake to introduce staff from Miller Waste Systems.
 
Niagara Regional Chair Jim Bradley will be in attendance, as well as Regional Councillors Kelly Edgar, Tim Rigby, Terry Ugulini and Albert Witteveen. Also attending, Lord Mayor of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Betty Disero. Representing Miller Waste will be Blair McArthur, Denis Goulet, Paul Saabas, Mike Canal, Debbie Patterson, Lance Parcher and Rob Harris.
 
Everyone attending the photo op in person are asked to wear face coverings, which will cover the nose, mouth and chin, and maintain physical distancing of two metres during the event.
 
Media attending are asked to kindly RSVP to Norm Miller at Niagara Region, norman.miller@niagararegion.ca. Media who cannot attend but wish to receive a copy of any photos can contact Norm Miller.
 
Niagara Region’s new waste collection contract will see changes to curbside waste collection effective Oct. 19, 2020. Niagara Regional Council approved every-other-week garbage collection at a Special Council Meeting on Oct. 17, 2019. The change will apply to garbage collection for all low-density residential properties (single home and properties with one to six units), and for those Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional and Mixed-Use properties located outside Designated Business Areas.
