Application for Accommodation based on Disability for Solid Waste and Recycling Collection
The City of Sarnia recognizes that some individuals may need assistance and flexibility to set out solid waste and recycling. The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) requires municipalities to provide accessible customer service policies, procedures and practices. As part of the City’s initiative to achieve compliance with the AODA, the Human Resources Department and Public Works are developing a strategy to provide improved collection services of solid waste and recyclables for residents with disabilities.
City Council has approved a provision to provide some flexibility and assistance for residents with medical conditions demonstrating a need for accommodation. Special consideration is available for individuals that have a medical condition that generates excessive solid waste or have a disability that limits the ability to lift heavy bags or boxes where there are no other able-bodied persons of the age of twelve or over living at the residence.
By completing and submitting an application, eligible residents will be provided with assistance and flexibility as required.

Residents must renew yearly on the service anniversary date for continued service.
