Garbage, Recycling, and Green bin will be collected as usual on Monday, August 5, 2019 (Civic Holiday) and as usual for the entire week.
Information on your mobile device is available on the Town's Waste App:
“TBM Waste Resource” app available for download from Apple and Android
Also access waste information from www.thebluemountains.ca/solid-waste.cfm
As usual please ensure:
The Town's Waste Resource Web App is a tool that residents can use to confirm collection day and holiday collection information. It can also be used to determine what types of materials or waste are accepted curbside or at the Landfill Site.
To report missed collection, contact the Infrastructure and Public Works Department. Please include the municipal address of the missed collection.
To find out when your garbage, recycling and green bin collection day is, please put your home address into the Waste Resource Web App at the top of the page or check the Waste Collection Schedule Map.
A fee of $150.00 per metric tonne will apply to waste materials delivered to the landfill. Please note that there is a minimum site fee of $6.00 per load.
Household recyclables, tires, electronic waste, hazardous waste (May to September ONLY) and yard waste can be dropped off free of charge during hours of operation.
Bulky items can be delivered to the landfill site; fees may apply.
Recycle your used and unwanted electronics for free!
Most home electronic devices qualify for recycling – bring out your dead (or done) computers, televisions, stereos, VCRs, phones, printers, etc. to the landfill and we’ll recycle them.
The landfill accepts all refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and dehumidifiers for a charge of $15.00 each during regular hours of operation.
Deposit return containers may now be delivered to the landfill site during hours of operation. Sorted LCBO and Beer Store containers will be returned for deposit to benefit our local Beaver Valley Outreach programs.
Use of the Hazardous Waste Depot is free!
If you have a stationary curbside garbage box you need to use the Waste TAB indicator! These TABs are installed on your stationary curbside garbage box and are available for pick up at Town Hall (32 Mill Street Thornbury) or the Landfill Site.
TAB indicators are available for a cost of $2.00 each.
Stationary curbside garbage boxes can be purchased at many hardware stores. Ensure that prior to placing a Stationary curbside garbage box within the Town Road Allowance a Permit is applied for by contacting the Infrastructure and Public Works Department. This ensures that the location of the box will not interfere with Town maintenance activities.
In an effort to clearly identify and plan promotions and education efforts associated with waste diversion in the Town's waste diversion system, a Waste Diversion Communications Plan has been created.
The Plan outlines intended actions and annual monitoring of actions against tonnage of material collected.
