Multi-Residential Garbage and Recycling Information

Welcome to the information page for the City of Cornwall's multi-residential garbage and recycling program.

Recycling in multi-residential properties is important.

With the assistance of multi-residential building owners, property managers and superintendents, tenants can:

  • Reduce the amount of garbage sent to landfill (potentially reducing garbage fees)
  • Conserve natural resources
  • Incorporate other waste reduction and reuse habits into their daily lives

Multi-residential Waste Rebate Program

City Council has adopted a by-law establishing a property tax rebate program for Multi-Residential buildings. 

This rebate program provides tax relief to property owners of multi-residential buildings that utilized the services of a private hauler to collect the building's residential waste. Rebates will be issued by the municipality to owners or authorized representatives who submit a Multi-Residential Waste Credit Rebate Application with supporting documentation (invoices from hauler confirming total weight collected).

Property owners who are eligible for rebate can submit an application to the municipality each year by February 28th. To be eligible for the rebate, the multi-residential building must not have used the City's curbside waste collection services during that period, must have participated in the City's Recycling Program and must not be in tax arrears.
