CLEAR GARBAGE BAG PROGRAM
- Both curbside collection and transfer station drop-offs must be made using clear garbage bags.
- Garbage bags may not contain any recyclable, compostable, or hazardous materials. These materials must instead be directed toward the appropriate recycling, composting, or hazardous material program.
- One (1) privacy bag is allowed in each clear bag to conceal items that residents wish to keep private.
Bags not conforming to these requirements will not be collected after the start date. Residents and businesses are encouraged to use up their opaque garbage bags before the start date. The Township of Douro-Dummer is alerting local retailers about the Clear Garbage Bag Program so that clear garbage bags will be readily available.
