Cart Use and Care

Here are some tips on how to care for your garbage and recycling carts.  If your cart is missing or damaged, please contact GFL at 844-464-3587.

  • Do not place heavy items in the cart, such as concrete, sand, gravel, or soil
  • Rinse the cart out with water from time to time.  If odor exists, use mild soap and water to wash the cart.
  • Do not exceed the weight limits listed on the cart.
  • Hot items, such as ashes, will destroy the cart and should never be placed in the cart.
  • Hazardous materials, chemicals, or flammable liquids should not be placed in the cart.
  • Never roll the cart with the lid open.
  • Do not place the cart on slopes.
  • Dragging the cart will wear a hole in the bottom. Please make sure to use the wheels to move the cart from your home to the curb on collection days.
  • Playing on or in the cart can cause injury or entrapment, and should not be done.
