Ajax Council is pleased to announce a partnership with Creative Outdoor Advertising to increase the availability of three-stream waste receptacles in high traffic locations around town. A total of 31 receptacles will be installed in a variety of locations across Ajax with future opportunities to expand.

Benefits of this partnership include:

  • The Town receives installation of 31, three-stream waste receptacles with no-cost waste removal and cost-sharing of advertising revenues;
  • Creative Outdoor Advertising provides advertising space to local businesses, which pays for the waste removal;
  • Local businesses have additional access to affordable advertising opportunities; and
  • Residents benefit from increased availability of waste receptacles, with no burden on their tax bills.
