Niagara Region announces change to price of garbage tags effective May 1, 2023

Niagara Region is changing the price of garbage tags from $2.50 per tag to $2.85 effective May 1, 2023. Residents living in homes or apartments with six units or less who need to place an extra bag or can of garbage at the curb can purchase a garbage tag.

This price change supports the full cost recovery of garbage collection and supports Niagara Region’s continued effort to divert recyclable and organic materials away from landfills.
Previously purchased $2.50 garbage tags will not expire and can continue to be used. $2.85 garbage tags will be available for purchase online, or available at participating retail locations across Niagara. More than 100 different stores sell garbage bag tags on behalf of Niagara Region.
Recycling boxes and Green Bins are collected in unlimited quantities at your curb each week and can significantly reduce garbage. Residents are encouraged to learn more about Niagara Region’s Waste and Recycling Programs.
