Winter Waste Storage and Collection in Southern Ontario

Panda Environmental has worked in the Ontario region providing full-service waste removal solutions for over 15 years. Our services offer businesses across the region with a high-quality solution that is affordable and environmentally sustainable.
This article will focus on the services that Panda is able to provide throughout the year, including the winter months. Click here to contact us today.
Winter General Waste Collection
General waste is all waste that is sent to the landfill. This is typically the largest percentage of the waste from customers that we work with. Waste is taken to the appropriate landfill, as per municipal and provincial regulations, and is disposed of in the proper manner.
One of the biggest issues we find with waste collection in the winter is that collection rates are increased as dumpsters begin to fill up with snow, leaving less room for waste. Make sure to always keep your dumpsters closed and locked when not in use to ensure that you don't run out of room before your scheduled pick up. Learn more
Recycling can take place throughout all months of the year. Recycling is an environmentally sustainable and efficient method of reducing the environmental impact of waste that is created by a business. Recycling waste is taken to a recycling plant instead of being disposed of at the landfill, and as such is seen as a renewable waste solution. Recycling can sometimes even create profit for a business if they are able to sell their recyclables to a recycling services plant. In the winter be sure to clear out a path for both your general waste and recycling dumpsters. This makes collecting your waste much simpler and safer for everyone. Learn more
Winter Hazardous Waste
Hazardous waste must be disposed of properly, as per municipal/provincial/federal guidelines but the winter months can cause some additional problems if not addressed. Always ensure that your disposal containers are free of snow and ice to avoid any slippage or potential freeze cracks if the containers are made from plastic. Failure to dispose of this waste properly can result in a large environmental impact and large fines for the business. Panda Environmental works with our customers in order to ensure that all hazardous waste is disposed of in the proper manner. We have our own designated hazardous waste processing facility in order to ensure that the waste is dealt with in the proper manner and to give our customers the best of hazardous waste solutions.

"I wanted to tell you how much we appreciate your ‘pickup’ guys. They are amazing. The boss actually watched the driver 2 weeks ago…he got out of the truck and straightened the garbage container, picked up a bag that had fallen out in the dumping process and put it in the can, then removed 2 black bags from the recyclables that had been put in there by error (I assume). Never before have we had/seen such amazing service!"
