Agricultural Plastics Diversion Pilot Program

Oxford County is launching a new pilot program for agricultural plastics at the Oxford County Waste Management Facility (OCWMF). Local farmers can now dispose of agricultural plastics, including silage bags, bunker covers, bale wraps, fertilizer bags, and salt bags (black, blue, and white), for $50/tonne. All materials must be reasonably clean and free of contamination. Materials must be sorted according to type, packed in appropriate bags, and tied up. Loose and excessively dirty material will not be accepted and categorized as garbage. Unacceptable materials include net wrap and twine mesh. Learn more on the Special Recycling web page.

Waste Management Annual Reports 

Oxford County is required to report on all waste management facilities and operations annually to the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change. Reports are first tabled and approved by Oxford County Council. Read the full waste management reports on the About Waste Management web page.
