Kitchener Garbage Pick Up - Large Units & Businesses


While Kitchener provides Blue and Grey Cart Recycling programs for buildings comprised of 7 or more units and that have dumpster units, the Region does not provide garbage collection, meaning landlords/property managers need to arrange for private garbage collection from a hauler.


On top of that, 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


Panda provides the following waste related services:

  • General waste removal: this for general waste that will be taken to the landfill and discarded of in the standard manner. It is not recommended that recyclable materials are including in general waste.
  • General recycling: recycling waste means that less is sent to the landfill. Recycling can reduce waste removal costs by selling recyclable materials to recycling agencies, or by reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill (which in turn reduces cost).
  • Organic waste composting/recycling: it is estimated that nearly 50% of all waste created falls under the organic waste category. Organic waste can include food scraps, paper, wood chips, or anything else that will break down organically over time. 
  • Hazardous waste disposal: hazardous waste 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. 
  • Waste consulting: 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 (general waste vs recycling vs organic vs hazardous).

A hauler like Panda is necessary for Kitchener garbage pickup for businesses and commercial buildings.



Kitchener Garbage Pick Up - Waste Reduction Tips


Here are some general tips to reduce waste and therefore the amount needed to collect each week.

  • Recycle all your organics by using the green bin. This can reduce your garbage by over 50 percent!
  • Reduce food waste by buying only what you need and using it up on time.
  • Adopt "green" buying habits. Items should be durable and have recycled content.
  • Buy local. Purchasing food grown and products made locally reduces packaging, supports the local economy, and reduces the impacts of transportation.
  • Repair items when possible, including furniture, cellular phones, computers, etc.
  • Use reusable items such as refillable bottles for water and coffee, cloth bags or totes when shopping, and reusable containers for food.
  • Donate used clothing and other household items, bicycles, windows, doors, lumber and many other items:
  • Discuss the 3R's (reduce, reuse and recycle) with your family. 
  • Compost in your backyard.
  • Mulch your grass when mowing by leaving it on your lawn to provide nutrients for a healthier lawn.
  • Look online for ways to make your own "green" cleaners, furniture polish, and laundry detergent.
