Frequently Asked Questions

King Recycling and Waste Disposal, Inc. is the cleanest and most efficient recycling center and garbage dump in Toronto. We will gladly accept all your industrial and construction waste. We also rent and deliver bins to your location so you can fill them as you need. We will then pick it up and return it to our facility where we sort it all for you! Here are some answers to questions we are often asked:

Q: What is the difference between clean fill and mixed waste?

A:Clean Fill is considered to be inert soil, brick, block, or small bits of concrete. Mixed Waste, however, is wood, drywall, metals, plastic, cardboards, renovation waste, and demolition waste. Asphalt may not be mixed with Clean Fill or Mixed Waste, it is to be placed in a separate bin for Brampton, Mississauga, Toronto, and the surrounding GTA area.

Q: What can be mixed in the bins?

A: Only materials within the same category. Clean Fill or Mixed Waste can be mixed. Clean Fill items cannot be mixed with Mixed Waste items by any means. Asphalt must remain separate from any other materials. Any mixing of Clean Fill and Mixed Waste materials will result in additional charges to your quoted rate.

Q: How long can the bins stay on site?

A: The bins can remain on site for up to five days before needing to be returned to our garbage dump in Toronto. However, the length of time can be accommodated at the will of the dispatcher.

Q: Do I need a permit for the bin?

A: If the bin is positioned on private property belonging to the client, there is no permit required. If the bin must be placed on the road or blocking a sidewalk in the Toronto, and the surrounding GTA area it is the responsibility of the client to acquire a permit of that municipality. If you are unsure of how to acquire a permit, feel free to contact us, and we will be happy to provide you with all of the necessary information.

Toronto & Mississauga area garbage pick up FAQs
Q: Do disposal bins damage driveways?

A: Disposal bins typically do not incur any damage to property. However, at King Recycling, we caution our clients to take extra care by laying down plywood or any other substantial piece of wood to support the bin. To lay a material down not only helps to further protect property from any potential damage, but also aids the drivers in understanding where best to place the bin, should there be no one on site to direct otherwise.

Q: When should I place the order for a bin?

A: An order should be placed at least one day in advance. This is to ensure you get your bin on time.

Q: Some of the vehicles don't look safe. Are they?

A: Yes they are. While looks are important, far more important is the safety of the vehicle to be on the road. Any of our vehicles, before going on the road are inspected and must pass a pre−trip inspection report in accordance with the Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) Daily Truck, Trailer and Coach Inspection And Maintenance Requirements.

Q: What are the methods of payment?

A: We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, debit and cash.. You can pay the driver at the time of delivery, provide a payment over the telephone, or at our Toronto recycling center.
