Proper garbage disposal habits are imperative in maintaining a clean and sanitary environment. The best form of pest control is prevention.

Garbage and/or Recyclables may be taken directly to the 2nd floor loading dock and placed in the proper receptacle or you may use the garbage/recycle room located on your floor.

Garbage/Recycle Rooms

At CoreLofts we are committed to recycling and we expect each resident to actively participate in the program.

Each floor (excluding the main floor), has a garbage/recycle room. For the consideration of other residents, use these rooms between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. and dispose of items as quietly as possible. Nothing is to be left on the floor in the room.    

Please dispose of garbage in the plastic garbage containers and the paper products and recyclable containers in the appropriate blue box.  Garbage must be properly bound, packaged, bagged and sealed to prevent any undue odour or mess.  All garbage must be placed in one of the provided garbage bins. Do not leave garbage on the floor.

No hazardous materials will be placed in the room.  Any damage resulting from placing inappropriate items shall be charged back to the homeowner.  Items that do not go in the rooms include flammables/combustibles, kitty litter and bulk items.  These Items should be taken to the loading dock room (2nd floor) or disposed of at a hazardous waste depot. For more information please call 905.546-CITY or visit hamilton.ca/garbage-recycling.
