Frequently Asked Questions


The cost of operations and regulatory compliance in the waste industry is ever increasing. If you’ve experienced a price increase, it reflects the rise in our costs to service you. This is predominantly due to inflation of our own operational costs and changes in government regulations that require us to handle your waste differently than before. Our priority is always to serve you to the highest possible standard, so a price increase may be necessary to fulfill that commitment.

The cost of processing recyclables has become volatile and unpredictable. GFL remains adamant that recycling is an essential part of our environmentally-responsible business model and our commitment to helping our customers meet their sustainability goals. As such, we want to ensure we safeguard our customers’ ability to recycle and help divert materials from landfills. GFL only applies the recycle processing adjustment to offset the cost of processing recyclables and achieve a reasonable operating margin while servicing in an environmentally safe manner. These standard charges are not a tax, surcharge, or fee imposed or mandated by any governmental or regulatory agency. These are fees or adjustments charged by GFL and may be changed at the discretion of GFL. To the extent required by the terms of your service agreement, your consent to the application of the recycle processing adjustment and any changes thereto is effective upon your payment of your invoice.

Accepted credit cards include American Express, Discover, Mastercard, and Visa. You can also pay through your checking account. For more information, visit the Pay My Bill page.
