Current set price for bag tags: $2.00. There is no tax or mark-up on bag tags, although some vendors may charge a minimum sale fee for debit or credit purchases. There is also no minimum requirement for purchase.

One bag tag is needed for each bag or rigid container. Check bag and container size limits.

Why does Oxford County use bag tags?
Bag tags encourage reducing, recycling and re-using. In a “user pay” system residents only pay for the waste they generate, rather than sharing or distributing the costs of curbside collection as part of the County’s tax levy.

Blue boxes are available for purchase in a number of sizes from:
Oxford County Administration Building
21 Reeve Street, Woodstock

Oxford County Waste Management Facility (landfill)
384060 Salford Road, Salford

Blue boxes (excluding the 95 gallon totes) are sold at all of the local municipal offices.

Available blue boxes for purchase

360 Litres (95 Gallon) Multi-Residential tote: $30 for multi-residential and $60 for commercial /tote

83 Litres (22 Gallon) Curbside blue box: $5.50/box

26 Litres (6 Gallon) Apartment size container: $3.50/container

Lids for 22 gallon containers : $1.50/lid

Composting is the process of breaking down organic material (yard and food waste) into a dark, nutrient-rich soil that can then be used to help your gardens and flower beds grow.

The County sells two types of composters which can be purchased from your local municipal office, including the Oxford County Administration Building, or at the Oxford County Waste Management Facility (landfill). Available options are an above ground composter with a 311 litre capacity for $10 or an underground composter called the Green Cone, able to digest up to 1 kg of food waste every 1-2 days, for $40. Accelerator powder can be purchased for $4/packet at the Oxford County Administration Building and Oxford County Waste Management Facility (landfill).

For more information on starting your outdoor compost, check out the Compost Council of Canada website.
