Never miss your waste collection day again!

The below media release from the City of Peterborough was just distributed!

The City of Peterborough has made it easier than ever for residents to stay connected about waste management collections and programs.

Visit our website and search your home address in our new “Collection Events” calendar tool. You can then:
– Sign up for waste collection reminders by email, phone call, or text message
– Sign up for schedule changes due to weather, upcoming events and seasonal campaigns
– Download your collection schedule into your iCal, Google calendar or Microsoft Outlook calendar
– Print your collection schedule.

Not sure how to properly dispose of something? Visit and use our new “What Goes Where” tool to find out if a material can be reused, recycled, composted or disposed of as garbage.

“The residents of our city do a great job recycling, composting, and diverting waste away from landfill,” remarked Mayor Bennett. “It’s now even easier to learn about solid waste management in our community with our new online tools. Sign up for collection day reminders and never forget to put out your recycling again!”
