Information for Oxford County’s industrial, commercial and institutional community.
Apartments, condos, townhouses or other dwellings with six or more housing units.
Businesses, manufacturers, hospitals, facilities and other organizations where people work.
Enhance service to your customers by becoming a bag tag vendor.
Place material where it can be clearly seen and safely collected.
White garbage bags are difficult to see in the winter; black or green bags work best. Your bin must say “Recycling” on it- use a standard blue box.
Ensure material is free of snow and ice. Do not place material on top of snowbanks as collection staff cannot climb over snowbanks to pick up material.
Keep material out of the path of snowplows and sidewalks. Broken bags may not be collected and clean up is your responsibility.
Store set-out material in a shelter or garage during times of extreme weather conditions (heavy snowfall or high winds).
Place bag tag around the neck of the garbage bag so that the ends of the tag are stuck to one another. This prevents lost tags as some tags may not stick to a cold plastic bag.
Secure your items -stack your recycling bins or put something heavy on top. Never use plastic bags for recycling, except for shredded paper!
