Everyone must purchase bag tags for disposal of non-recyclable garbage put out for collection (1 tag per bag). All tags must be visible to ensure pickup. If the driver cannot easily see the tag, the bag may be left behind. Tags may be purchased for $2.50 each (no tax) in sheets of 5. Purchased bag tags have no expiry date.  Bags taken to the transfer station will be charged the normal transfer station tipping rate (bag tags are for curbside collection only and cannot be used at the transfer station).
