How to apply for City garbage collection

  • Apply: Apply for City collection using this form. Property owners must fill out this application as all fees are applied to tax bills.
  • Fee: A fee of $261.35 per business at the requested property will be charged on the final property tax bill of the property.
  • Limits: The fee provides a garbage disposal limit of six bags per business listed under Part B. Any number of bags over this limit will require City of Kingston bag tags. See more information on City bag tags and how to set out your garbage.
