Grace Period for Clear Garbage Bags Ends
The grace period for residents and businesses to transition to clear garbage bags in the Township of Douro-Dummer will come to an end on Monday, March 12, 2018. Starting on this date, opaque garbage bags will not be collected at the curb nor will they be accepted at the Hall’s Glen Transfer Station. Curbside waste collectors and Hall’s Glen Transfer Station attendants have been instructed to only accept household waste which conforms to the size and clear bag requirements set forth in 2017-50 – Garbage By-law (pdf – 136KB).
The Township of Douro-Dummer would like to thank all of our permanent and seasonal residents, and businesses for their tremendous efforts in transitioning to clear garbage bags for the disposal of household waste.
Educational materials, advice and assistance are available from the Township on our website, our Twitter feeds, directly from staff or through the “My Waste” App which is available through the County of Peterborough. Residents and businesses are encouraged to contact the Township of Douro-Dummer with any questions they have about implementing the clear bag program in their home or business.
