Polycart Service Guidelines

Because we will be using the automated side load truck system for your service, we are asking for your cooperation on the following items.

  • Poly carts should be placed with the handle facing away from the street.  Please place within 2 feet from the curb.  Please do not place your cart in the street.
  • Carts must be placed at the curb or on the turnout of your driveway before 6:30 am on your pick up day or the night before. 
  • Carts should not be placed too close to mailboxes, fences, parked cars or other objects.
  • Only your poly cart will be picked up on your regular trash pick up.   No other trash cans please.
  • Items cannot be placed on top of the cart, as any items placed on top the cart may fall to the ground or allow animals to scatter your trash.
  • Please do not overfill your cart so that the lid will close properly.  Bagging your trash before you put it in your cart will help prevent blowing trash when it is dumped.
  • If you need an additional cart, they are available and may be ordered by contacting the City of Lindsay at 756-2019.
  • If you need a medical waiver, they are available and may be completed by contacting the City of Lindsay at 756-2019.
  • Observed holidays include New Years, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  If your regular pickup day falls on one of these holidays, you will be serviced the following day.

The Town of Lindsay Staff and Waste Connections will be available to answer any questions you have concerning your new trash service. 

Thank you for allowing us to be of service,

The City of Lindsay and Waste Connections

Medical Waiver

Our new service requires residents to roll their cart to and from the curb each week. If your doctor feels that you are physically unable to bring your cart to and from the curb, you may request that the City help you by rolling your cart to and from the curb for you.  

Residents that may require a medical waiver may contact us at 756-2019, and speak to one of our customer service representatives. You may also download a medical waiver here, and return it to the City of Lindsay. Please note that this form must be signed by your doctor and updated annually, that you are not physically able to participate in curbside collection.
