The 2017 Halton Guide and Waste Collection Calendar is here!

Release Date: Jan 30, 2017

The 2017 Halton Region Guide and Waste Collection Calendar has been delivered by mail to all Halton residents. This year’s calendar provides residents with important waste collection resources and information on how to access the many programs and services that make Halton a great place to live. The 2017 waste collection calendar contains plenty of information for residents including:

  • weekly collection dates from February 2017 to January 2018 and accepted waste materials;
  • tips and resources about how to reduce waste at home and in the community;
  • how to access Regional programs and services;
  • how to use the Halton Waste Management Site and services; and,
  • information on the priorities of Regional Council and the Halton Region Strategic Action Plan 2015-2018.

“I encourage residents to read through the 2017 Halton Guide and Waste Collection Calendar to learn more about waste collection and tips. I am also proud to say that thanks to Halton residents’ continued participation in our recycling, composting and safe disposal programs, 62 per cent of residential waste has been diverted from Halton’s landfill” said Halton Regional Chair Gary Carr. “And, in this year’s calendar residents can find information about other programs and services, including health, tourism, emergency preparedness, infrastructure planning and more.”

Halton Region is committed to providing residents with high-quality, easy-to-use waste management services, keeping neighbourhoods clean and protecting the natural environment through sustainable practices such as Blue Box and Green Cart programs.
