All waste must be at the roadside/curb by 7am on your collection day or collection cannot be guaranteed.

Miller Waste picks up your garbage, recycling, and green bin organic waste. Meaford has been recognized as having one of the highest waste diversion rates in the province, thanks to your participation in our recycling and green bin programs. Here you can find information on pickup schedules, drop off locations, and what materials belong in the green bin, blue box, or garbage can.


Did you know that there is no curbside pick up for natural Christmas trees?  What are you plans for your tree after the holidays?

You can drop off your natural Christmas tree at two locations: Meaford (157859 7th Line) and Sydenham (458372 Grey County Rd 11).  Both drop off locations will not accept trees after January 31st. Please be sure to remove the tinsel, decorations, and tree stand from the tree prior to drop off.
