Urban areas of the County receive weekly collection of blue boxes. The rural areas of Guelph/Eramosa and Erin receive bi-weekly collection. Collection is provided from Tuesday to Friday each week. If you are not sure of your collection day, where to place your materials, or whether you get curbside collection, please contact SWS.
An alternate collection day is provided if your regular collection day falls on a statutory holiday.
You must place blue box recyclables in municipal style blue boxes for collection. Placement of the boxes for curbside collection is important for efficiency and safety. Apartment buildings with seven units or more use large wheeled carts for collection . No matter which type of collection you have, the same rules apply.
