Garbage & Recycling pick up is changing
Better for you, better for all of us
Starting September 14, 2015, Oxford County is changing its waste management program*, offering better service for a lower cost, with a smaller environmental footprint.
What it means:
- Recycling pickup will be offered every week.
- New trucks will allow for single stream recycling – meaning you’ll no longer have to sort your fibres (papers) from containers (plastics, cans, bottles, etc.)
- The enhanced service will cost less, and will have less of an impact on the environment.
*Excludes City of Woodstock & South-West Oxford Township
Temporary Garbage & Recycling schedule
In April, a temporary garbage & recycling schedule was sent to all residences in Oxford County (excluding Woodstock).
View the temporary schedule that will be in place from April - September 2015.
A new curbside pickup calendar will be sent out to Oxford County residences in mid-August. The new calendar will also be posted here in August, or sign up for e-alerts.
