Clear Bag Program
In 2016 the Village of Burk’s Falls moved towards a clear bag program in order to reduce unnecessary waste and promote recycling to increase community environmental sustainability. All curbside household waste is to be placed in a clear, translucent bag with a Village of Burk’s Falls pick up tag secured to the bag. A translucent bag allows waste management staff at curbside to determine if there is more than 10% recyclable materials contained or if there are any hazardous material within the bag.
In the interest of privacy, each clear bag is permitted to include one privacy bag. The privacy bag is to be no larger than an average grocery store bag. Privacy bags allow residents to dispose of items that are considered to be sensitive or private, such as sanitary products, personal hygiene items and diapers.
Non-compliant bags, will be left at curb with a warning tag indicating the reason as to why the bag was not picked up. It is up to the resident to rectify the issues and place the bag at curbside for the next regularly scheduled pickup. If you are unsure as to why your waste or recycling was not picked up, please contact Waste Connections Directly to inquire; 1-800-461-4448.
