Collection Containers - Wheelie Bins

Only waste and recycling in "Wheelie Bin" containers provided by BRA will be collected. 

Middlesex Centre has a user pay program for waste and recycling. Those who produce the least waste pay the least. This is an excellent opportunity for you to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as you can. Residents pay for size of waste bin their household requires.

  • Small Bin: $100
    35 gallon or 120 litre capacity / dimensions 39" x 20" x 23"
  • Medium Bin: $185
    65 gallon or 240 litre capacity / dimensions 41" x 27" x 28"
  • Large Bin: $270
    95 gallon or 360 litre capacity / dimensions 45" x 29" x 34"
