Recycling & Waste

Important Waste Information:

  • The 2017 Halton Guide & Waste Collection Calendar will be delivered to all households by the end of January 2017. The new calendar will include your collection dates from February 2017-January 2018.

Halton Waste Management Site (HWMS) Sunday Openings Pilot Program ended July 10, 2016.
The Site will continue to operate Monday to Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The results of this pilot program will measure resident interest and assess the long-term feasibility of having HWMS open on Sundays. A report on the HWMS Sunday Openings Pilot Program will be presented to Halton Regional Council this fall to help determine future direction.
