Welcome to your collection hub. This page will have your updated recycling & waste schedules, as well as helpful information for other disposal methods. For any further questions, please see our frequently asked questions, or contact us here.
The Association is pleased to offer the following recycling service to your community:
To ensure that your materials are collected, place your recyclables at the curb by 7:00 am on your collection day on your designated side of the street.
Please do not hide your recycling 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.
The Association does not provide waste collection service in this area at this time. Current services are provided by an alternate service provider. Please refer to the municipal website for additional information. Please look up Rubbish Removal in the yellow pages for private service or contact the local municipality for alternate services provided.
There is no scheduled curbside collection service for source separate organic materials and leaf and yard waste collection in your community.
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.

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.
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.
Warwick Township provides two annual clean up days for residents of the municipality for large bulky waste. Dates are scheduled annually in June and October. Visit the municipal website for specific dates.
