  • The current billing rate for residential services in a month the fee the city charges is $7.80 for the truck to go past your house. The city will pick up city authorized garbage bags that you may buy at several different locations throughout the city. There are white bags which cost $1 and red bags which cost 75 cents. The city is giving you these bags for free and requiring you to pay for the hauling of those bags from the City of London to the landfill. Non-authorized bags are twice the cost of official City of London bags.
  • The city provides the opportunity for you to control the amount of waste that is placed in those bags by offering for you to recycle some of your waste material. Paper, other than corrugated cardboard, will be placed in the green box, and mixed recyclables, such as glass, aluminum, and #1 and #2 plastics will be placed in the red container.
  • The more you recycle the less you put in the waste stream the less you have to pay to the City of London. The less the City of London has to pay for shipping and dumping of the waste material, the better the City and environment become. We encourage the use of recycling to lower your individual cost. This allows the sanitation pickup to be billed on a user-fee basis rather than one price fits all.
