Where to Purchase Additional Containers
King Township municipal office located at 2585 King Road, King City, ON. Please refer to the current fees and charges by-law for cost. Green bins and blue boxes become the property of the homeowner.
Replacement for Damaged Bins
Call GFL Directly at 1-866-421-5625 to arrange for a replacement bin. You may also bring the broken bin to Service King at the municipal office (2585 King Road) to have it replaced. Please note that this replacement service is intended for the King Township bins only.
New Home in a New Subdivision?
If you have purchased a new home in a new subdivision, your builder may have already purchased the bins for your home. The builder will provide one green bin, one kitchen catcher bin and one recycling blue box at the time of occupancy.
If you purchased a "re-sale" home and the previous home owner took the bins with them, you are required to purchase new containers.
Safety Notice to Residents – Waste Collection
We wish to remind residents to place their waste and recycling for collection at the end of their driveway only. Please do not place collection across the road. This is a serious health and safety hazard risk. If you are having difficulty with your waste collection, please contact our waste collection contractor GFL at 1-866-421-5625 or alternatively King Township at 905-833-5321. Thank you for your assistance.

With the addition of “bag tags”, three (3) additional bags/ containers of garbage up to a total of five (5) bags/ containers (2 untagged plus 3 tagged) can be collected.
