Blue Box

Notice: Please note that all County waste facilities are closed to the public at this time in an effort to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. Curbside collection of both garbage and blue box recyclables will continue throughout Wellington County. All materials should be placed out by 7:00 am on your regular collection day. Please be advised that garbage must be in County-issued user pay garbage bags in order to be collected. Learn more about curbside garbage collection and learn more about curbside recycling collection. Thank you for your patience and understanding.


There are two ways to recycle blue box materials in the County of Wellington. Curbside collection service is provided to households in urban areas of the County on a weekly basis, and on a bi-weekly basis in the rural areas. Residents and businesses can bring their blue box recyclables to any of the six County waste facilities. There is no charge to participate in the Blue Box Recycling Programme. If you are a new resident in the County, please feel free to contact us with questions.
