December 2023 Waste Collection Schedule Changes

The Ontario Government is implementing NEW Producer Responsibility legislation that makes producers (companies who supply blue cart packaging and paper products to consumers in Ontario) responsible for managing and paying for the entire life-cycle of the products they produce. As provincially mandated, the County's recycling program transitions to this model January 1, 2024.

What does this Provincial change mean for you?
To align with the Province, our bi-weekly cart collection rotation will change for SOME areas of the County. Impacted households will have TWO consecutive recycling collection weeks (November 27-30 and December 4-7). ​These households are permitted one additional garbage bag (to be placed beside their cart) on their next garbage week (December 11-14).
