How to Reduce Waste
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 email@example.com 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.
We want to help keep unnecessary items from entering our landfills and help you meet your garbage collection limit. Check out some of the options below for ways to keep your used goods out of our local landfills.
If you have any questions about these programs please call the City at 311.
