Organics - including composting, is an environmentally important alternative to waste.

Composting 101

While the Bluewater Recycling Association specifically deals with recycling and waste, we fully endorse the process of composting. You will find that not only is it much easier than you may think - it is also extremely resourceful & environmentally friendly.


The Green Cone is an integral part of dealing with your household waste. It is a completely natural system that reduces your food waste to its natural components of water, carbon dioxide and a small residue.

Yard Waste Sites

If you are looking for ideal locations to drop off your yard, brush and leaf waste - this is where you need to go. We have interactive maps, simple text lists and a downloadable guide that you can print.

Love Food Hate Waste

Food waste is a major issue. In Ontario, we throw away 4 million tonnes of food and drink from our homes every year, the majority of which could have been eaten. It's costing us over $12 billion a year.


Compost—the backyard gardener's gold! Make compost in your own backyard at no cost to you. Simply recycle your kitchen scraps, leaves and yard trimmings to unleash the power of compost. It is truly that easy.
