All properties that receive curbside waste collection by the Township of King were provided with one green bin, one indoor bin and one recycling blue box at the inception of the waste diversion program. Containers used for waste collection services must comply with the Township’s waste collection By-law 2007-65.
Where to Purchase Additional Containers
Residents requiring additional containers are able to purchase them at the municipal office located at 2075 King Road, King City, ON. Additional purchased green bins and blue boxes become the property of the homeowner.
The Township will provide free replacements for damaged or broken bins provided the bins display the Township logo.
After the initial distribution of green bins, indoor bin and blue boxes all new property owners have been required to purchase waste diversion containers.
New Home in a New Subdivision?
If you have purchased a new home in a subdivision, your builder may have already purchased the bins for your home. The builder will provide one green bin, one indoor bin and one recycling box at the time occupancy.
If you purchased a "re-sale" home and the previous home owner took the bins with them, the new home owner is required to either retrieve the bins from the previous owner or purchase new containers. The Township does not provide free replacements for bins removed from the residence.
