Blue Box Collection Changes

Durham Region's recycling program will transition to an Extended Producer Responsibility System in 2019, which means that the collection and marketing of blue box recyclables will become the responsibility of the producers rather than the municipality. The change will not affect trash pickup, green bin, or leaf and yard waste pickup. Waste Management Services says the transition should be seamless, and residents shouldn't notice any differences to their curbside collection.
