Niagara Region launches waste collection app ahead of upcoming changes

CKTB News- Garbage delays

The Niagara Region has launched a new app to help sort through waste collection confusion.

The app called Niagara Region Waste (Apple, Android) contains waste collection schedules and a function to help take the guesswork out of sorting trash into the blue bin, grey bin, green box, and garbage.

Residents can also set up reminders for their individual collection days.

The app is being launched to help raise awareness as waste collection in the region is set to change starting October 19th.

The region is moving to every-other-week garbage collection.

Blue bins, grey bins, and green boxes will still be picked up every week.
