Waste Management

The Municipality provides waste and recycling collection and disposal services to eligible households in Northern Bruce Peninsula. This includes the operation of three municipal waste disposal sites with recycling depots and other diversion programs. 

Curbside Waste and Recycling Collection

Curbside waste and recycling collection is carried out weekly. To ensure materials are collected, residents must have their items at the curb by 8:00 a.m. on Monday. 

Curbside collection will occur on all statutory holidays except Christmas Day and New Year's Day if they fall on a Monday. 



Our recyclable materials are sent to a facility that can effectively sort mixed recycling. Using just one box for all of your recyclable items increases the ease and convenience of recycling and allows it to be collected more quickly.

Accepted materials include:

  • Glass: clear or coloured jars
  • Cardboard: corrugated, box board, boxed beverage containers
  • Paper: envelopes, paperbacks, magazines and catalogues, printer and fine paper, newspaper and flyers
  • Tin and plastics: food and beverage containers, pop cans, plastic bottles, tubs and lids, plastic clam shell containers. Plastic numbered 1 to 5 and 7.

For more information, please visit Waste Management's Recycle Right website. 

Each improved property that receives waste collection can place two bags, not exceeding 22 kilograms each, per week at the roadside for collection. 


Permanent containers must have a visible indicator system (marker/flag/sign) in place to notify the contractor when materials are ready for pick-up. 

Private or unmaintained roadways

If you live on a private or unmaintained roadway, place your waste and recyclable materials at the nearest intersection of a serviced roadway. If you live on a seasonal roadway, place your materials at the nearest intersection of a serviced roadway between October 15 and April 15. 


Materials should be placed in a visible location. Make sure they are not hidden behind a vehicle, snow bank or other obstruction.
