Every Other Week
In 2016, City Council approved a phased approach for changes to waste collection policies in Greater Sudbury.
The first two phases happened in October 2016 and October 2019. The third and final phase will happen in February 2021, when the City moves from picking up one bag of garbage every week to picking up two bags of garbage every other week. Unlimited quantities of leaf and yard trimmings will also be collected every other week.
Unlimited quantities of Blue Box recyclables and Green Cart organics will continue to be collected on a weekly basis. Special support programs have been developed to help residents with the changes and a few additional support programs are under review.
