Waste Management

Waste Management responsibilities for the County of Bruce are shared between the County and local municipalities.

Local municipalities are responsible for garbage collection, blue box recycling, electronics recycling, and landfill site operations.  The County manages the Household Hazardous and Special Waste Collection Program, and is involved in waste management education and monitoring the capacity and operations of the local landfill sites.  

Household Hazardous & Special Waste Materials

Used batteries piling up?  Tripping over old cans of paint?  Here's your chance to get more space in your garage and dispose of your household hazardous and special waste materials in an environmentally friendly manner.  Each year the Bruce County Highways Department organizes events for the collection of hazardous and special material.

The Household Hazardous & Special Waste Collection Events are complete for 2016.  The schedule for 2017 will be published in the near future.
