Garbage Bag Tags

Setting out your garbage

Using garbage bags

The size of garbage bags you use, will determine how many bag tags are required. Scroll down to see how many bag tags you need for the size of bags you use.

  • If you are placing black or green garbage bags, or white kitchen catcher or plastic shopping bags our at the curb, you must place a bag tag on the top half of each garbage bag and both ends of the tag must be visible.  Each garbage bag, whether it is a full or half full bag, must have a bag tag! 

Using garbage containers

The size of your garbage container will determine how many bag tags are required.  Scroll down to see how many bag tags you need for the size of containers you use.

  • If you are using a container to hold your black or green garbage bags, and setting out the container at the curb, each bag inside that container must have a bag tag with both sides of the tag visible.  Even if you have a full bag and another bag on top that is half full or a white kitchen catcher, each of those bags must contain a bag tag sticker.
  • If you are setting out only white kitchen catcher bags or small plastic grocery bags in your container, place the bag tag on top of the last bag. 
  • If you are setting out your garbage container with loose garbage inside, you must place a bag tag on top of the loose garbage.
