Waste diversion fee adjustment

Owners of homes assessed with 2 - 7 dwelling units can apply for a reduction in the daily waste diversion fee and a reduction in their recycling and garbage cart collection service.

Who is eligible to adjust their daily waste diversion fee and reduce their recycling and garbage cart service?

The owner of a property assessed with 2 - 7 dwelling units can reduce their level of service (i.e., the number of carts and the service to empty the carts). We use the City's Assessment and Taxation records to determine the number of dwelling units at a property.

Upon approval, we will adjust the daily waste diversion fee to reflect the adjusted level of carts and service.

How do property owners apply for a reduction in the daily waste diversion fee?

Property owners or their agent can download the printable application form and submit it by mail, email or fax.

You must declare if the property is either:

Can I opt out of City recycling and garbage collection service and not pay the daily waste diversion fee?

No, for two reasons. The daily waste diversion fee:

  • is not charged to cover the collection costs of recycling and garbage
  • was introduced to fund new programs that provide our residents with more ways to reduce, reuse and recycle (e.g., curbside yard waste collection, a curbside kitchen organic collection trial, Community Resource Recovery Centres), ultimately helping our community reduce the amount of garbage that goes to the landfill
How many carts do you deliver to homes with more than one dwelling unit?

The following chart shows the numbers of recycling and garbage carts assigned to homes with more than one dwelling unit.
