The City of Kingston is increasing the number of garbage bags allowed per household from one to four per week without requiring bag tags. This increased limit is effective immediately and will be in place until April 5th. The City says they will reassess the policy at that time.
“This measure is being put into place to help individuals and families who are self-isolating to dispose of their garbage safely,” the City said in a press release.
The City urges residents to continue to comply with the one bag limit, if possible, and only put out up to four bags if absolutely necessary.
