Curbside and Waste Disposal Bin Collection Information
Missed waste collections are upsetting, but there is usually a reason why material was not collected as expected. To ensure your waste is collected, please ensure it is:
Collection will not be made on Christmas Day or New Year's Day but will continue uninterrupted on all other statutory holidays. When a holiday is observed, collection will be accelerated as to be completed within the calendar week.
Improved properties located within a waste disposal bin area that do not receive curbside waste collection shall also adhere to the bag limit of two (2) garbage bags per week. Furthermore, only household waste shall be disposed of in these bins.
Blue boxes are available for $9.00 (including HST) at the Municipal Office during regular business hours.
NEW! Beginning February 1, 2015, the Municipality will be accepting mixed recyclable materials at its Depots/Facilities. All accepted recyclable materials can be placed into one bin at the Municipality's Recycling Depots/Facilities. Recyclables are then transferred to a Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in Cambridge. This single-stream recyclable processing uses separation technologies specifically designed for a mixed recyclable stream.
Accepted recyclable materials:
Glass: clear or coloured jars. Rinse out containers and remove lids.
Cardboard: corrugated, boxboard, boxed beverage containers. No Styrofoam, plastic bag liners or staples.
Paper: envelopes, paperbacks, magazines and catalogues, printer and fine paper, newspapers and flyers. No hardcover books.
