Garbage and Recycling

Oxford County manages a leading Waste Management program, consistently reaching top rankings for waste diversion in its class among Ontario municipalities. We collect garbage and recycling from roughly 26,000 households across its six participating municipalities co-collected in the same truck.

What's New

Construction at Oxford County Waste Management Facility 

Construction is almost complete at the Oxford County Waste Management Facility, where crews have been working to install a second scale and a new scale house at the Salford Road site.

Staff would like to thank customers for their patience throughout the construction period. The new 80' scale will improve traffic flow and reduce wait times.

Tips for setting out materials in the winter

During the winter months, Oxford County Waste Management reminds residents to ensure that collection staff can see their set-outs easily. Refrain from using white garbage bags, which can be challenging to see in snowy conditions. Avoid placing garbage and recycling on top of snowbanks. If necessary, shovel an area for your waste at ground level.

Inclement weather during the winter can cause delays or cancellations to garbage and recycling collection. Oxford County residents can sign up to receive service alerts sent directly to their smartphone or tablet by downloading the Wasteline app. Residents can also sign up for email, phone or text service alerts through the “When’s my pickup?” widget on wasteline.ca.
