NOTE: Yard waste is not collected on your regular collection day.
All waste should be at the curb by 7am on your scheduled collection day, and no earlier than 5pm the day before.
Routes can change. Keep in mind that sometimes collection routes are altered to accommodate winter weather, snow removal and construction, among other things. To ensure your waste is collected, have it out by 7 a.m. on your collection day. For timely updates about route alterations or cancellations, call GFL at 1.888.941.3345 ext. 1.

BINS & BOXES
Blue Boxes, Green Bins and kitchen collectors are available at local municipal offices, the Orangeville Operations Centre, and the County office at 55 Zina Street, Orangeville.
If your container is broken, bring it in! We’ll have it recycled and give you a new one.
Extra containers are also available for a fee.
AT THE CURB
It is important that containers are visible and neatly set out at the curb. Keep containers for each stream (e.g. garbage, Blue Boxes & Green Bin) separated at the curb.
In the winter, maintain an area to safely place waste containers at the road. Containers placed on a snowbank can not be collected for health and safety reasons.
|The trucks that collect Blue Boxes and Green Bins have a "split body". It may look like the compostable material is going in the same place as recyclables, however, the trucks being used to collect the materials have two separate compartments. You can't see the two compartments unless you're standing at the back of the truck.|
|The use of a waste enclosure to store garbage, Blue Boxes, and Green Bins at the end of your lane is permitted in rural areas. The enclosure must have a flag, similar to a mailbox, in order to notify collection staff if there are materials to be picked up. The flag should be at least 5 x 10 cm (2 x 4 inches) and painted red. Collection staff will not stop if they do not see a red flag. The location of all enclosures must be approved by Dufferin County Waste Services. This flyer contains more information on waste enclosures.|
There are some rural roads that the collection vehicles only travel in one direction. On these roads, waste must be put on a particular side of the road to be collected. If waste is placed on the wrong side of the road, opposite the “line of travel”, residents are notified by the driver with an “Oops” sticker. If you have any questions regarding the line of travel, please call Dufferin Waste at 519.941.2816 ext. 2620.
