Recycling Depots

Current: Curbside Collection During COVID-19

In response to COVID-19, the Municipality has made adjustments to the curbside collection program in the region. Please be advised of the following:  

  • Curbside recycling is suspended until July 14, 2020.
  • Until July 14, crews are collecting two bins of mixed garbage and recycling per household. Please place garbage and recycling together in bags and place inside of the black and light blue collection bins.
  • Crews are collecting one bin of yard waste per household each week. Yard waste can be placed un-bagged (or in paper yard waste bags) inside of the dark blue bin. Learn more here.

Upcoming: Curbside Collection Returns July 14

Starting July 14, curbside collection in the region will return to regular operations. This includes the regular collection of recycling materials and the re-opening of most Recycling Depots
Learn more about this upcoming change here.
