The new curbside collection services begin NEXT week here in Wellington County. By now, all eligible households should have received a green bin for organic waste.
The green bin programme will divert an estimated 2,000 tonnes of food and organic waste from the County’s landfill site annually, which will extend the life of our landfill site. Across the Province of Ontario, there is only 14 years of landfill capacity left, and no new landfills have been developed in the past 20 years.
Recyclables and organics will be collected weekly, while user pay garbage bag collection will move to every other week.
