Road conditions posed some challenges for Monday garbage collection (January 15, 2018). The roads impacted included Julia Shore Road East, South Bay Shore Road – only collected up to #1810, and Miles Shore Road. If you did not receive garbage collection, please hold your material until next week or visit Halls Glen Transfer Station. M&M Disposal will collect double next week, thank you for your understanding.
The Public Works Department has closed off Douro Fifth Line North between Highway 28 and County Road 6. This temporary closure is due to the road conditions including water on the road and ice buildup, making for unsafe condition. This section will be closed until further notifications.

Township staff are travelling the garbage routes ahead of the garbage collection trucks to assess how residents and businesses are transitioning to the Clear Bag Program. Feedback to date is positive, a very large percentage of residents have made the transition–thank you for your efforts! Residents that continue to use opaque bags are being left green “OOPS!” stickers on their garbage bins, recycle bins, or in their mailboxes (where available) as a friendly reminder about the change to clear garbage bags. If you receive one of these stickers please contact the Township office for information on how to transition to clear bags. Information on the program can be found in the Clear Garbage Bag Information Sheets (pdf – 1MB) and the Frequently Asked Questions (pdf – 331KB).
The My Waste App gives you the power to use your smart phone to help sort waste into the appropriate stream. The app also offers an up to date calendar detailing collection dates, holidays, and special waste events in your area.
The My Waste app is available through Google Play and the Apple App Store. Visit the Peterborough County Garbage and Recycling webpage for a link and details.
