2014 Waste Management Guide & Collection Calendar

Starting this week, the 2014 Waste Management Guide and Collection Calendar will be delivered to residents’ mailboxes. The calendar is effective February 1 and has everything residents need to know about waste collection in Halton Region, including a schedule for Blue Box, GreenCart, garbage, bulk waste and yard waste collection and information on the Halton Waste Management Site.

“The 2014 Waste Management Guide and Collection Calendar is a quick reference tool for residents to locate important information about all of Halton’s waste management programs,” said Regional Chair Gary Carr. “It also has interesting information about how Halton’s effective waste management practices are contributing to the Region’s sustainability and making good financial sense for Halton’s taxpayers. For example, Halton’s landfill was originally planned to close in 2012. Thanks to the diligent diversion efforts of our residents, the landfill life has been extended to 2044. With a replacement cost running close to $1 billion, this commitment to increasing diversion not only benefits our natural environment; it’s also financially good for the taxpayer.”

As part of Halton’s commitment to being an effective government providing high quality services, the Region is also making it easier for residents to remember their waste collection schedule. The calendar is not only available online atwww.halton.ca/waste calendarbut residents can also go there to sign up for weekly reminders through email, phone or Twitter and even add a collection schedule to your personal electronic calendar.

If residents have not received their 2014 waste collection calendar by January 31, they can contact Access Halton by dialing 311 or use the online Service Request Tool at www.halton.ca/waste.
