Windsor Residents will be able to access the bulk item collection system more frequently starting August 1, 2017.
The current collection system, which will remain in place through the month of July, offers collections one Friday per month in each zone on a schedule broken down into four collection zones: Zone 1 collection is the first Friday of the month, zone 2 is the second Friday, etc.
As of August 1, collection will be done in Zones 1 and 2 on the first and third Friday of the month, and Zones 3 and 4 will be done on the second and fourth Fridays. There is no bulk collection on a fifth Friday.
“We feel with the more frequent collection we’ll be able to better accommodate those residents who need us but forget to sign up until it’s too late,” said Environmental Services Manager Anne Marie Albidone. “Now when residents see that first week of pickup at a neighbour’s they might be reminded and have time to call and make the second week instead.”
Specific criteria outlining what items are acceptable and not acceptable are outlined on the City of Windsor website in the Residential Bulk Furniture Collection pages.
There is a maximum of two items per pickup, and the cost for the service is $20 per item.
To book a pickup, call 311 Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., excluding holidays, and 311 staff will advise you of available dates. A credit card will be accepted over the phone, or cash and debit can be accepted at our Customer Care Centres though appointments must still be booked first by calling 311.
