Commercial Waste Removal in Cambridge


The Region of Waterloo does not provide garbage collection for businesses, commercial buildings, or large dwelling units (ie: apartments and condominiums).


If you are a landlord, property manager, or business owner, the onus is on you to hire a private waste management company.


Panda Environmental services Cambridge and surrounding areas and provides the following services:

  • Waste Removal: Items that will be taken to the landfill and discarded in the standard manner.
  • Recycling: Reduce your waste removal costs by selling recyclable materials to recycling agencies, or by limiting the amount of waste sent to the landfill.
  • Organic Waste Composting: Includes food scraps, paper, wood chips, or anything else that will break down organically over time. 
  • Hazardous Waste Disposal: This requires specialized waste removal and must not be combined with general waste (it is illegal to do so). Panda is able to provide full hazardous waste removal solutions and consulting.
