Important Information

If you are using our yard waste bin for excavation waste (excess soil), you will be required to fill out the Excess Soil in the Bin form before the delivery of the bin. If it has not been completed and received by the office your bin will not be delivered. More information on excess soil.

Want even more out of your yard waste bin rental? Have it arrive filled with landscape products or aggregates like topsoillimestone or stone dust. We’ll deliver the bin with the materials you need (only one product per bin) and pick it up when you’ve refilled it with yard waste. Not only is this super-convenient, but you’ll save 50% on the delivery cost of the delivered product.

Our Yard Waste Bin Rental Process
  • You must mark your driveway with a clear “X” to indicate where you would like your bin placed. Keep in mind the size of the bin is 10 feet long by 8 feet wide and 3 1/2 feet high, which would take the place of a car. Please remember to leave at least 8 feet of space to allow for the container door to swing open at rear of container.
  • If you ordered a landscaping product in the bin, we will dump the product and then place the empty yard waste bin on your driveway. Again, you MUST mark two (2) “X”s with clear instructions to inform the driver where you want the product dumped on your driveway and where you want the bin placed. Chalk is best for doing this, but be mindful of the weather. The best option is to be home during the time of delivery to be sure you get your bin and product in the best place.
  • The bins have a back door that opens to allow easy access when filling. Please ensure load only excavation or only leaf & yard waste in the container (please scroll below for a listing of acceptable waste).
  • If the yard waste bin is mixed, you will be charged the higher cost of the dump fee. Materials can not be mixed because they need to be taken to different disposal sites.
  • Bins may only be filled to the maximum levels indicated on the bin.
  • When you are finished, call our main office at 613-821-3003 to arrange pickup and cancel any further daily charges.

NOTE:  Household garbage, construction debris and asphalt are not permitted in the yard waste bin. If found within the load, you will be charged $175 per metric tonne for the load.

Dump & Return (D&R):

  • A flat rate of $325 per trip for D&R for excavation waste, or a flat rate of $300 per trip for leaf and yard waste, plus applicable taxes.
  • Prices include delivery and pick up.
  • Only one waste can be put into the bin - either excavation OR leaf and yard waste.  The two waste streams can not be mixed.
  • Household garbage, construction debris and asphalt are not permitted in the bin ($195 fee / metric tonne).

NOTE: If you want the bin placed on the street in front of your home rather than on your driveway, you MUST arrange for a temporary encroachment permit through the City of Ottawa. The driver will not place the bin on city streets until you provide the driver with the proper permit. For more information on temporary encroachment permits, please email row_permit_office@ottawa.ca or call 3-1-1.
