Recycling & Waste Collection Schedule

The City of Kenora Environmental Services division provides residential recycling and waste collection service on a weekly schedule.

Why does my recycle and waste not get picked up?

Here are a few reasons that your waste or recycle may get left at the curb-side:

  1. It must be left out by 8:00 a.m. on your assigned pick up day.
  2. Bags MUST NOT weigh more than 25lbs – bags heavier than this will be left.
  3. Waste/recycle is ripped apart by animals.  The drivers DO NOT pick up destroyed bags and waste/recycle in your yard.
  4. Contaminated recycle will not be picked up  (ie: cardboard that is wet, greasy or has garbage in it)
  5. Using half of a bag tag on your garbage bag will result in your waste being left. Everyone has to pay the same user fee for pick-up.
  6. Garbage, glass of any sort and plastic bags in your recycle box will result in the drivers leaving your recycle! This contaminates the co-mingle (mixed items) recycle with non-recyclables in it.

Remember you can bring your recyclables and waste to the Transfer Station 7 days per week!
