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.
For updates regarding Covid-19 and the Towns Landfill site please visit the Newsroom.
To report missed collection, contact the Operations 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.
Please note that the Town Landfill will only accept waste from Town of The Blue Mountains residents and/or individuals that own property in the Town of The Blue Mountains.
The landfill will be operating under the following temporary schedule:
In addition, a number of new operational restrictions and safety measures have been implemented to ensure the safe and effective operation of the landfill. Please read the following items carefully:
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.
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 Operations 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.
