Pickup Tips for Garbage Collection Day:
Put your garbage out by 7:00 am.
The best container for your garbage is a good quality garbage bag.
If you use small kitchen bags or grocery bags for your garbage, put them in larger sealed bags.
Package sharp objects (e.g. broken glass, knives, nails, needles) in puncture-proof containers with lids and put them in your garbage container.
Place all loose garbage (e.g. sawdust, ashes, vacuum contents) in sealed bags. Loose garbage can blow out of the truck into the collectors’ eyes and litter neighborhoods.
If you use garbage cans, remove the lids before placing the cans out for collection. Lids and empty containers can become a traffic hazard or become lost or damaged, especially on windy days.
Put small amounts of animal waste in tightly sealed double bags.
Leave some space between your recyclables and your garbage. This helps both the recycling and garbage operators identify what they should collect at your home.
The RM of Headingley encourages our residents to actively re-cycle. With a two bag weekly garbage limit, Headingley is a leader in recyling in Manitoba. Each week, along with your garbage pickup we have a curbside recycling program. Below is a list of products picked up each week.
The RM of Headingley uses a clear or clear blue bag collection method. We no longer use re-cycle green or blue containers.
The R.M. of Headingley accepts the following items for recycling:
Newspapers, flyers, magazines, and catalogues
Aluminum cans, steel/tin cans
Glass jars and bottles
Plastic containers - including PET #1, HDPE #2, #5 and #7
