Curbside Waste Collection Regulations


Domestic waste placed in tagged garbage bags must be set out at curbside by 8:00 am on the morning of your scheduled collection day.  Each garbage bag must have a City of Kenora Bag Tag placed on the side of the bag, making sure the full Bag Tag is visible.  In colder weather, the Bag Tag can be wrapped around the neck of the garbage bag sticking the two ends together ensuring that the full Bag Tag is visible.  Each garbage bag must weigh less than 25 pounds (11.36 kilograms) and be smaller than 46 litres in size (approximately 24″ X 30″). You may place tagged garbage into a waste container or cover it with a blanket or sheet to discourage scavengers. Tagged garbage should be placed apart from your Blue Box recyclables.

Bagged leaves and grass clippings can be placed out with your regular waste for collection with a City of Kenora Bag Tag visible.

Shredded white paper is accepted in clear bags and residential customers do not require a City of Kenora Bag Tag for this collection.

Your garbage may have not been picked up for one of these reasons:

  • Bag Tag cut in half or not fully visible
  • Oversized bag used
  • Bag contains excessive weight
  • Bag contains unacceptable waste
  • Loose garbage inside or outside of waste container
