What goes where?


Garbage limits and fees

You cannot place more than two bags of garbage at the curb each week. Each bag of garbage must have a bag tag on it. Learn more about garbage fees, tips and reminders.

Set-out reminders

  • Garbage, recycling, and green bin(s) placed on snowbanks, will not be collected
  • Recycling must be sorted correctly into the blue and grey box
  • Have your waste to the roadside by 7:00 a.m. on your regular collection day 

Leaf and yard waste

We provide free monthly curbside pickup of leaf and yard waste from mid-April to mid-December.

Visit our waste and recycling centres

In addition to curbside collection, Northumberland County residents may drop off additional waste, including household hazardous and electronic waste, bulky items, recycling and more, at one of our three Community Recycling Centres.
