Garbage Pick Up Holidays

Here you can see the city-observed holidays.

Where there is a long weeked or civic holiday, regular weekly curbside collection will be impacted as follows:

  • Waste will be collected the day after normal collection. For example, normal Monday collection will happen on Tuesday. If your normal collection day is Friday, your waste will be collected on Saturday.
  • If a holiday occurs mid-week (for example, Canada Day), regular collection before the holiday will not be impacted. Collection on or after the holiday will shift one day accordingly.
  • During Christmas, waste may be collected two days after normal collection. For example, if normal collection is Wednesday, December 25, it will shift to Friday, December 27.
  • Two garbage bags can be placed curbside without bag tags on your collection day after New Year’s Day, Victoria Day, and Labour Day.

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Kingston and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
