One Bag Limit to be Placed on Tag-Less Garbage Pick-Up Starting June 1


The City of Belleville would like to advise residents that starting June 1, residents will be allowed to place one bag of garbage without tags at the curb for pick-up on collection day. All other bags collected will require bag tags. Starting July 1, the City will resume regular collection requiring tags for all bags placed at the curb.

Bag tags can now be purchased online at belleville.ca/bagtags. Please note that bag tags must be purchased in sheets of 10. Once purchased online, the tags will be mailed to the purchaser. Please plan ahead and allow 3-5 business days for delivery.

Until June 1, residents will be allowed to place up to two bags of garbage without tags at the curb for pick-up. This initiative was first taken to ease the impact of COVID-19 on residents. Please remember to follow the rules and guidelines outlined for waste collection and abide by the City’s maximum lift policy:

  • Belleville Ward: 6 lifts (bags/containers) per week
  • Thurlow Ward: 10 lifts (bags/containers) per week
  • Commercial: 16 lifts (bags/containers) per week
  • Downtown: 16* lifts (bags/containers) per week
