COVID-19 Update: Recycling Centre Public Front Counter Reopening

Jun 30, 2020

Effective Saturday, July 11, the City of Greater Sudbury will reopen the front counter of the Frobisher Street Recycling Centre to the public. The counter has been closed since mid-March in line with other COVID-19 closures.

The counter will be open Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. for purchase of backyard composters, kitchen collectors and Big Blues. Payment by credit or debit is encouraged.

The Recycling Centre will not be distributing blue boxes or exchanging damaged green carts. Residents are asked to place an order on the Waste Wise app, online at, or by calling 311. Waste collection crews will deliver blue boxes and/or exchange damaged green carts directly at the roadside of the resident’s home. The Waste Wise app is available on the Google Play or App Store by searching for “Greater Sudbury Waste Wise.”

In addition to ordering a blue box or green cart, the app can also be used to receive pick-up day reminders, schedule large furniture, appliance or electronic item pickups, search the what-goes-where database, and more.
