Holiday Waste Collection

Due to Christmas Day and New Year’s Day falling on a Sunday this year, there are no changes to the regular curbside collection schedule.
Households may place out two extra bags or cans of garbage without a tag on their curbside collection day on their first garbage collection week following Christmas Day.  Residents in single-family homes and apartments with six units or less will be able to put out four bags of garbage:
• Dec. 26-30: Fort Erie, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Pelham, St. Catharines, Thorold, Wainfleet and West Lincoln
• Jan. 2-6: Grimsby, Lincoln, Niagara Falls, Port Colborne and Welland
All materials must be at the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day.
If your property is an Industrial, Commercial, Institutional or a Mixed-Use building within the St. Catharines Enhanced Designated Business Area that receives collection on Sunday, your collection will be delayed by one day.  In lieu of regular Sunday collection, collection will occur on Monday, Dec. 26 and Monday, Jan. 2.
Christmas Tree Collection – Jan. 9-13, 2023
Niagara Region is collecting Christmas trees for composting during the week of Jan. 9-13, 2023 for residents in single-family homes and apartments with six units or less.  Residents should be aware of the following:
• Place tree at the curb by 7 a.m. on your regular collection day
• Remove all ornaments and decorations
 Christmas trees wrapped in plastic, or buried in snow, or placed on top of snow banks will not be collected
• No artificial trees, these can be booked separately for large item collection
Special collection weeks such as holiday collection and Christmas tree collection are also included in your address specific schedule in the web/mobile app. Unsure how to dispose of your holiday waste?
