If you're looking for information on garbage collection in Kitchener, Panda Environmental Services can help. Kitchener is one of the largest urban regions in Ontario, and its residential and business communities are growing every year. There are a number of services available in regards to residential and commercial waste disposal. Read on to learn more, and contact the experts at Panda today for more information on how we can help.
The standard level of garbage collection is provided by the Region of Waterloo and is offered to residents living in single and semi-detached homes. To find out when your garbage will be collected, you can use the Region's interactive map (shown below). Search for your address at the top of the page, or scroll around the map to find your location. The colour coded map will then tell you which day of the week your garbage pickup occurs, and how frequently it happens.
For single-family homes and duplexes, here's what's included in the service:
The Region does not provide garbage collection for large dwelling units and businesses, meaning landlords/property managers need to arrange for private garbage collection. Additionally, Kitchener does not provide waste services to businesses and commercial buildings. If you are a landlord or property owner for this type of building, you will need to arrange for private garbage and recycling collection from a hauler such as Panda Environmental.
That's where a company like Panda comes in. We provide the following waste related services:
To help you set up a plan, Panda's waste consulting services are designed to educate and inform the client of ways that their waste removal system could be improved and give accurate breakdowns of the exact makeup of their waste. Contact us today to set up an appointment.
Hazardous waste was mentioned above with respect to business garbage collection in Kitchener, but it's important to note that weekly or bi-weekly garbage collections do not pick this type of waste up from your home. This is to ensure the health and safety of those working in waste collection, as well as the health and safety of those in the community. In order to safely dispose of household hazardous waste, you must bring your waste to a drop-off location, which can be found here.
Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) includes:
Examples of Panda's HHW removal trucks.
A maximum of 25 litres per household per month of HHW can be dropped off at Regional facilities. Keep Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) in the original container so that the chemical can be safely identified; if not in the original container, please write on the container what it contains. Finally, make sure all containers are sealed and do not leak.
Hazardous waste materials will feature one of the above symbols.
