Meaford, Ontario – July 28, 2015 – At the Council meeting of July 27, 2015 the Municipality of Meaford Council awarded a new contract for Recycling, Organics, and Solid Waste Collection to Miller Waste Systems.
In addition to reducing the annual costs of these services by about $51,000 per year, our waste management services will now include a number of service enhancements:
Styrofoam, plastic film, and cat litter/pet bedding will be added to curbside pickup.
Large/bulky item curb side pickup will also be available on scheduled dates through the spring and summer months.
The Municipality of Meaford will be closing the Meaford Transfer Station at 3:00pm on Saturday September 26, 2015. Meaford residents will continue to be able to use the Miller Waste Transfer station in Owen Sound, located at 2085 20th Avenue East in the City Industrial Park.
Further information will be released as the details for curbside pickup of the new items becomes finalized. Please see Garbage and Recycling for up-to-date information on Meaford waste services.
Leaf and Yard waste drop-off will also continue to be available at 157859 7th Line, Meaford from mid-April to mid-November.
The existing curbside Collection Areas and Collection Days will remain the same.
