Waste Collection Day Change Information being Mailed to Affected Residences

Nov 27, 2020

As part of the upcoming change to Every Other Week collection of garbage and leaf and yard trimmings, nearly 13,000 households will soon receive a notice in the mail indicating a change to their upcoming waste collection day of the week, beginning February, 2021.

The notice will indicate your current collection day of the week and the day it will change to beginning in February.

All residents can confirm their new pickup schedule online by visiting greatersudbury.ca/wastewise, downloading the Greater Sudbury Waste Wise app in the App Store or on Google play, or calling 311.

As part of City Council’s commitment to an environmentally sustainable community, the extension of the life of our landfills, as well as ongoing efforts to reduce costs and streamline services, weekly collection of one garbage bag/container/bundle and unlimited leaf and yard trimmings will move to two garbage bags/containers/bundles and unlimited leaf and yard trimmings every other week. Although the frequency of garbage collection is changing, the number of bags/containers/bundles permitted is the same.

Residents will continue to receive unlimited Blue Box recycling and Green Cart organics collection every week and can also continue to make unlimited requests for large furniture, appliance and electronics pickup.
