Waste Management Facilities

Our community has three Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) for disposal of waste and recycling and one Material Recovery Facility (MRF), which processes recycled materials from the community. 

To use these facilities, you must be a resident of Northumberland County. Please note the Hope Transfer Station is only available for use by residents of the Port Hope Rural Ward.

Please note these facilities accept payment by debit and credit only.

Residents of Northumberland County may use any of our three CRCs to dispose of items such as household garbage, bulky waste items and recyclable materials.
