Garbage and 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
New garbage and recycling online calendar
In August, a new garbage & recycling calendar was sent to all residences in Oxford County (excluding Woodstock).
If you did not receive one, you can order a calendar by calling 519-539-9800, or pick one up from your municipal office.
You can also download the new calendar that comes into effect September 2015, or enter your address into the "When's my pickup?" tool above and sign up for automated alerts that can be sent by text, phone, email or online calendar.
