Garbage and Recycling

Oxford County manages a leading Waste Management program, consistently reaching top rankings for waste diversion in its class among Ontario municipalities. We collect garbage and recycling from roughly 26,000 households across its six participating municipalities co-collected in the same truck.

Waste Management Annual Reports 

Oxford County is required to report on all waste management facilities and operations annually to the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change. Reports are first tabled and approved by Oxford County Council. Read the full waste management reports on the About Waste Management web page. 

Large Item Collection 

Oxford County’s Large Item Collection runs from April to July this year, with new routes added in the Town of Tillsonburg.

Large Item Collection begins in the Town of Ingersoll (Zone 1) on Monday,  April 3. Please have your items to the curb by 7 a.m. on the Monday of your collection week to ensure pickup. Large Item Collection is intended for large items only; it is not a spring cleanup. 

Find out when Large Item Collection is happening in your neighbourhood, along with a complete list of acceptable and unacceptable materials on our Large Item Collection web page

Construction at Oxford County Waste Management Facility 

Construction is almost complete at the Oxford County Waste Management Facility, where crews have been working to install a second scale and a new scale house at the Salford Road site.

Staff would like to thank customers for their patience throughout the construction period. The new 80' scale will improve traffic flow and reduce wait times.
