NOTICE: No change to garbage and recycling collection on Canada Day

Garbage and recycling collection will happen as usual in Picton, South Marysburgh, and North Marysburgh wards on Canada Day.

Please have your garbage and properly sorted blue boxes to the curb by 7 am on July 1.

The landfill site in Picton will be closed for the statutory holiday.

Effective July 1, the County will once again require that all bags have a tag at the curbside.

Since March 26, the County allowed residents to put out one untagged bag of garbage per week. The temporary measure was intended to help individuals and families who were self-isolating to dispose of their garbage safely.

With the province moving into stage 2 reopening on Friday, June 12, several locations will be open and selling bag tags. View the list of locations where bag tags can be purchased. The municipality also sells garbage bag tags at Shire Hall (332 Picton Main Street) Monday–Friday between 8:30 am and 3 pm, and at the Picton fire hall (8 McDonald Drive) seven days a week between 8 am and 8 pm.

Garbage bag tags can also be purchased by mail. Send your request and a cheque payable to The County of Prince Edward to: Shire Hall, 332 Picton Main Street, Picton ON, KOK 2T0.

Blue box update

Residents can exchange a damaged blue box free of charge by visiting one of the municipality’s seven landfill and transfer sites. Exchanges are no longer accepted at Shire Hall.

Additional blue boxes are still available for purchase at Shire Hall for $8.
