Possible disruptions to waste and recycling collection due to weather conditions

Cobourg, ON – January 17, 2023 – Northumberland County is advising that residents may experience a possible disruption in waste and recycling collection today.

While efforts will be made to minimize disruptions to the collection schedule, some residents may experience a delay in their scheduled curbside waste and recycling collection, due to poor driving conditions caused by freezing rain.

In the event that your scheduled collection does not occur by 7 p.m. today, please remove your waste and recyclables from the curbside and place them out again on your next regularly scheduled collection day. If a delay occurs, curbside waste collection limits will be temporarily increased to four waste bags per household on the next scheduled collection day, in areas affected by the delay only.

Residents with questions regarding the removal of waste and recyclables are invited to email the Waste Services team or call the County’s Waste Hotline at 1-866-293-8379.
