Collection Schedule

We collect garbage, organics, and recycling weekly in Northumberland County, with the exception of the rural ward of Port Hope.

Waste should be set out to the curbside by 7 a.m. on your regular collection day. Visit our garbage page for information about set-out requirements and buying bag tags. 

Please note leaf and yard waste collection does not always occur on your weekly garbage and recycling day. To determine your local leaf and yard waste collection days, visit our Leaf and Yard waste page.
