Garbage Bag Tags

Residents setting out more than 4 bags of garbage every 2 weeks are required to tag each bag over the 4-bag limit. Garbage Bag Tags are special peel-and-stick labels that can be attached to your garbage bag.

Visit the Durham Region website for more information.

Garbage Bag Tags are easy to use:

  • peel the tag and flag it around the top of any additional bags above the four bag limit
  • do not use as a twist-tie
  • when using garbage cans, tags should be placed on the top item inside the can
  • there is no limit to the number of properly tagged garbage bags set out for collection, provided they are tagged

Effective May 1, 2014, garbage bag tags will increase from $1.50 to $2.50 per tag for curbside collection.   View the Durham Region notice of fee increase.  For purchase locations other than those listed below, please visit the Region of Durham website at www.durham.ca/waste
