Changes to curbside waste collection and waste facility hours of operation for Canada Day

Whitby, Ontario ‚Äď The Regional Municipality of Durham advises residents of changes to scheduled curbside collection, as well as Regional Waste Management Facilities hours, in observance of the Canada Day holiday.

When: July 1 to 4.

Where: Durham Region (across all eight local area municipalities).

All residents with curbside collection scheduled for Wednesday, July 1 will temporarily have their collection moved to the following day. This shift will continue throughout the week with curbside collection scheduled for Friday, July 3 moved to Saturday, July 4.

Regional Waste Management Facilities, in Brock, Scugog and Oshawa, as well as the Household Special Waste Depot in Bowmanville, will be closed Wednesday, July 1. Regular operations will resume Thursday, July 2.

Why: In observance of Canada Day.

Note: Residents are reminded to have waste materials at the curb by 7 a.m. on the day of collection. Garbage and green bin collection for Oshawa and Whitby residents is the responsibility of the individual municipalities, not the Region of Durham. Residents are asked to check their waste calendars or contact their local area municipality regarding the collection of these items.

The Region of Durham continues to safely provide essential services identified by the Province of Ontario, including waste management, in order to protect the environment and the public.
