Waste Management

Waste Management responsibilities for Bruce County are shared between the local municipalities and the County. Local municipalities own and operate their waste management facilities and are responsible for garbage and recycling collection services. The County manages the Hazardous Waste Collection Program and assists in education and monitoring of waste diversion and disposal programs.

The lower tier municipalities are responsible for managing landfill sites, waste collection and the blue box program. During this unprecedented time, municipalities are making decisions to reduce and/or limit specific waste management programs (including landfill site hours of operation).
