These City tools and programs are aimed  at helping Kingston divert 65 per cent of its household waste from landfill. Recycling and waste that can be composted or diverted through special programs are NOT garbage. Don't be a waster: if it's not garbage, don't put it in the garbage.  

Don't know where it goes? Use the Waste Sorting Look-up.

Leaf collection has been completed in areas B and C and crews are now collecting in area D.  Area D collection is expected to be complete by Tuesday, Dec. 6. Area E pick-up will start Monday, Dec. 5 as planned, so make sure your leaves are out by 8 a.m. Monday. Thanks for your patience. Here's the map of collection areas:
