Winter Tips for Garbage & Recycling Container Placement

  • Have a cleared, leveled area and pathway within 1 meter (3 feet) of the snow bank. We recommend the right side of the driveway when facing the street.
  •  DO NOT place garbage and recycling on top of snowbanks -these will not be picked up.
  • Placing garbage and recycling containers out at 7:00 a.m. on the day of pick up will avoid bags from freezing to the ground and being buried by snow.
  •  Ensure garbage containers are cleared of snow and avoid using white bags as they tend to be missed next to a white snow bank.

 The Town of Espanola contracts Green for Life (GFL) for residential curbside garbage and recycling collection. To contact GFL, please call 705-869-2447.

 Thank you for your cooperation,
