Garbage & Recycling

It’s Public Works Week! Part of the Environmental Operations Division, Solid Waste staff operate the Canborough Waste Management Facility, maintain and report on the closed landfill sites across the County and manage the contracts for curbside collection, Hazardous and Special Products (HSP) event days and material hauling just to name a few.  Staff also investigate and implement new diversion opportunities such as Christmas Tree recycling, battery drop-off depots and the subsidized composter program.
