  • To ensure that your materials are collected, place your garbage at the curb by 7:00 am on your collection day on your designated side of the street.
  • Please do not hide your waste container.  Be sure not to place it behind an obstruction where it cannot be clearly seen from the roadway.  For example: behind a snow drift, hidden in tall grass, behind an hedge.
  • Only containers provided by the Association will be collected.
  • Please remember that if your collection falls on a holiday, collection will occur as scheduled, except for Christmas and New Year’s Day; when collection may be rescheduled on an alternate day such as the Saturday in between.
  • A user pay program is in effect. The most benefits are gained when a little effort is put forth. Those who produce the least waste pay the least! This is an excellent opportunity for you to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as you can.
  • This is a user pay program and the cost for service is based on the bin size. Please check the Municipal Website for the current fees.  Annual 2018 published rates were $84.77 for a small bin, $109.83 for the medium bin, and $142.79 for the large bin.
  • If you have been missed, you can report the issue by calling our office at 1-800-265-9799 ext 228 or emailing us at dispatch@bra.org
  • See the Setout Guide for information.

Organic Waste

  • There is no year round scheduled curbside collection service for source separate organic materials and leaf and yard waste collection in your community.  However, the municipality offers Spring and Fall collection of leaf and yard waste.  Please consult the Municipal Website for details.
  • We encourage you to use a backyard composter or a digester to manage this type of material. Managing materials as close to the source as possible is usually the best approach from an economic and environmental perspective.
  • Leaves raked onto the street or ditch will not be collected. This poses a danger to pedestrians, bicycles and motorists and can cause drainage problems.
  • Yard waste can also be dropped off at your local Leaf & Yard waste site. See a map of all Leaf and Yard Waste sites here.. Note that not all sites can accept all materials, please call ahead to avoid any disappointments and some may charge a nominal fee to drop off your materials.

Hazardous Waste

  • Hazardous materials can be dangerous to people as well as the environment.  Be sure to bring your hazardous products to the special depots so that they can be disposed of properly.

  • Annually, the County of Huron schedules a special drop off day for household hazardous waste at temporary locations throughout the County.  Refer to the South Huron or Huron County Web site for information on dates & locations.
  • Farm generated hazardous waste is not eligible in the county sites.  Please consult OMAFRA and OFA for options.
  • Some retailers take back some materials.  For more information on the location and types of materials accepted visit www.orangedrop.ca
  • Agriculture and industry may produce the most hazardous waste by volume and mass, but the biggest threat to the majority of Canadians is our homes.  Our closets, cupboards, basements and garages are full of hazardous products, which are also known as household hazardous waste.  Products are considered hazardous when they are corrosive, reactive, flammable, toxic and/or radioactive.
  • Dangers associated with a product can be reduced through careful shopping or by using safer alternatives.  To get a list of safer alternatives, click here.

Bulky Waste

Some materials are just not made to be disposed of curbside.  Whether you are a resident doing a spring clean up, a renovation project, or you have oversize items to dispose of, you can use a containerized service like those offered by Mars Environmental or you can bring it directly to the local landfill.
