Tips for successful recycling pick up
- Every household must have two (2) blue boxes to sort recycling each week - one for containers and one for fibres.
- Place blue boxes at the road before 7:00 a.m. on your day of pick up to avoid missing collection.
- Follow the Peterborough County tips for proper sorting in blue boxes.
Holiday Information regarding Recycling pick up
- Collection will occur on all Statutory and Public Holidays with the exception of Christmas and New Year’s Day.
- Collection on Christmas Day will be cancelled each year (i.e. will not occur at all).
- Collection on New Year’s Day will shift by one day, making all collections for the remainder of the week occur one day later, such that Friday’s collection occurs on Saturday.
