COVID-19 Update – November 2021

The front counter at the Recycling Centre is open Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 7 a.m. to noon for the purchase of kitchen collectors and Big Blues.

Blue boxes and green carts are available for home delivery by placing an order through the Waste Wise app, online at www.greatersudbury.ca/wastewise or by contacting 311 by phone or Live Web Chat (311.greatersudbury.ca).

The Household Hazardous Waste Depot is open on select Saturdays. This schedule for drop-off days can be accessed through Waste Wise or by contacting 311. The Toxic Taxi will continue to operate for contactless home collection of residential household hazardous waste. To make an appointment, residents can email toxictaxi@greatersudbury.ca or call 705-560-9019.

The City’s landfill operating contractor is experiencing staff shortages related to COVID-19. As a result, the Sudbury Landfill Reuse Store will be closed Saturday January 22nd and Saturday January 29th, 2022 in order to prioritize primary landfill operations. Landfill sites remain open with limited capacity. Residents should be prepared for longer than usual wait times. The City has set up a live camera at the Sudbury landfill site so that residents can see how busy it is before they make the trip. The live feed is available at www.greatersudbury.ca/landfill-livestream.

Furniture and Appliances

Did you know? Appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and dehumidifiers contain chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) which are ozone depleting substances. Our collection crews are aware and will carefully collect these CFC containing appliances. These units are brought to a landfill diversion area where the CFC's are removed by a licensed technician and then the unit is recycled as scrap metal.

Do you have items that you need to bring to the landfill? Review our landfill diversion area information to see if your items can be diverted and reused when you bring them to the landfill.
