null Students: have a move-out plan
April 27, 2020 -
Students: Congratulations on finishing your academic year. Moving? Make sure you have a plan to make your move-out smooth, neat and safe.
Here are a few steps you should be sure to take:
Consider how COVID-19 affects your move-out plans. Stagger move-out times with your housemates to allow for physical distancing. Wipe down touch points with a disinfectant and make sure everyone washes their hands before and after moving items (move the items not germs!). Wear non-medical masks to protect anyone outside your household who is helping you.
Close your Utilities Kingston account. A minimum of five business days are necessary to ensure the account is closed on the date requested. You can do this on the Utilities Kingston website or by phone at 613-546-0000. (Hydro One electricity customers can call 1-800-434-1235. Union Gas customers can call 1-888-774-3111).
Dispose of any unwanted items properly. Not sure where it goes? Use the City’s Waste Lookup tool. Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City is allowing you to put out up to four untagged garbage bags a week for curbside collection.
Drop them off at paid disposal sites. These locations charge a fee for waste disposal. Items brought to them end up in landfill.
- Waste Connections of Canada, 1266 McAdoo’s Lane, 613-548-4428. Open Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. This facility will also be open Saturdays April 18 and 25 and Sundays April 19 and 26 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to help with the student move-out.

Be a good neighbor! Be mindful of the property standards and solid waste bylaws and leave your property clean. The Yard and Streets and Property Standards bylaws require yards to be free of any garbage or debris. There will be bylaw officers enforcing these laws so do the smart thing and plan ahead.
