Blue Box Recycling
Curbside recycling collection occurs weekly in the County of Prince Edward. A bag tag is not required for blue box recycling. For more information, please visit the Quinte Waste Solutions website.
Recycling boxes must be used for curbside pickup. They can be purchased for $8 at Shire Hall, 332 Picton Main Street, Picton, from 8:30 am – 3:00 pm, Monday – Friday. Damaged blue boxes will be replaced free of charge. Bring your broken blue box to any of our seven Landfill or Transfer Sites and trade it in for a new one. You can find location information for all of the sites by visiting the Landfills page here.
Recycling will also be accepted at any landfill (open Saturdays from 8-4). Large bags of paper, plastic or other recyclables, and blue box materials in quantities of more than three recycling bins must be dropped off at a landfill site.
Collection of blue box recycling is contracted to Quinte Waste Solutions. If your blue box is missed, please call 613.476.2148 ext. 1023.
