Garbage & Recycling

To keep from detracting from the appearance of our community, rules have been put in place to ensure that garbage, recyclables, and bins are properly handled and stored.

General Rules

  • Garbage and recyclables are not to be stored in the open.
  • Household garbage and recyclables are not permitted to be stored anywhere at the front of the townhome, or where visible from the street.
  • Garbage and recyclables are not to be left out sooner than 7PM the night before the garbage pick-up.
  • Bins are not to be stored in front of townhomes.

Collection Schedule

  • Collection day at Stately Way is every Tuesday. Household garbage is collected by the City of Markham on alternating weeks while green bin recycleables are picked up every week.

If you have more questions, please contact Town of Markham Waste & Environmental Management at 905-415-7535 or visit the Town of Markham website for our Garbage Pickup Schedule (Stately Way is Area 6)
