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.
*IMPORTANT* - In light of the Provincial shutdown and stay-at-home order beginning April 8, 2021, any groups wishing to participate in Pitch-In Week must comply with public health advice on physical distancing and may include no more than 5 people. Participants should avoid coming into close contact with anyone outside their household, and single-household groups are encouraged. Visit the Province’s website for more information on the declaration of emergency and stay-at-home order.
The Town of The Blue Mountains encourages you to participate in Pitch-In Canada Week, taking place from April 18 to April 24, 2021. During Pitch-In Canada week, teams and individuals from all across Canada visit parks, trails, shorelines and public spaces to pick up litter, making their communities cleaner and greener.
When you register a litter collection project with Pitch-In Canada, you have the option to receive free PITCH-IN Canada-branded collection bags. You may leave these bags at the curb during your normal waste pickup schedule, and they will be collected free of charge – no garbage tags necessary.
Here’s how you can get involved:
It can take 3-4 weeks from registering to receive your PITCH-IN bags, so register early! A limited number of PITCH-IN waste collection bags will also be available at The Blue Mountains Waste Disposal Site for curbside pickup.
When picking up litter, please consider your safety and the safety of others, and follow all public health guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Download the Province of Ontario’s Public Litter Cleanup Guide to help you collect litter safely. The Provincial stay-at-home order, beginning April 8, 2021, limits outdoor activities to exercise and does not permit outdoor gatherings of more than five people. Remember to follow all public health guidance to prevent the transmission of COVID-19, including physical distancing and proper wearing of masks.
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.

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.

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.
