The City of Kingston has increased its efforts to clean up the city.

Garbage bags/cans and recycling boxes can no longer be stored on the front porch or front yard of any property.  The city will fine parties not respecting this new requirement.  Average fines exceed $150 per offence.

Accordingly, garbage and recycling containers can only be placed out front on the evening before your scheduled pick up (or by 6am on the day itself).  

To check collection dates for your house, visit:
