We’re here to help you find the Vaughan trash pickup schedule for 2024 including bulk pickup, recycling, holidays, and maps.

The City of Vaughan is in Ontario, Canada with Newmarket to the north, Etobicoke to the south, Markham to the east, North York to the southeast, Caledon to the west, and Peel to the southwest.

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 Vaughan and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
