Christmas and New Year’s Holiday Green Bin, Garbage and Recycling Schedule

There is no collection on Dec. 25 or 26 or on Jan. 1. Put your collectibles out two days after your normal pick-up day next week – even if that means putting it out on Saturday or Sunday – and one day after your normal pick-up day following New Year’s Day.

Never Miss Collection Day: Go to www.CityofKingston.ca/Collection  to sign-up to receive collection reminders by phone, text or email.  They keep track of holiday changes for you. The City also offers a FREE “Kingston Waste” app for use on your Apple or Android device.
