Municipality of Grenville Nord: Last chance for bulky waste collection until October
If you have old mattresses or other large junk you’re trying to get rid of, you only have a few days left to have it picked up before the fall.
The Municipality of North Grenville is picking up curbside bulky items alongside household garbage and recycling this week.
You will need to purchase special labels for anything you plan to leave out. The municipality says the tags cost $12.50 each and some items, like shelves, mattresses and desks, require two tags to pick up.
You can buy the tags at the Civic Center, at Jonssons’ Independent Grocer in Kemptville, or online, but they will take a few days to ship if you don’t buy them in person.
If you have a number of smaller items that you wish to leave out, you can label them as a group, as long as they are contained in something like a bag and the total weight of each group is 80 pounds or less.
Some items, including appliances like washing machines and refrigerators, are not accepted at all, according to the municipality.
To see the complete list of what is accepted and not accepted, as well as what requires two beacons, visit the Municipality of Grenville North website.
The last collection day this week is Friday, May 13. After that, the next bulky collection week begins on October 31.
