Garbage and Recycling

Norfolk County has a wide variety of services and programs to help our residents dispose of waste as efficiently and environmentally sound as possible.  Information on these programs can easily be found on this site, as well as our Waste Collection Guide, which has returned for a fourth year. The guide details important and valuable information regarding the County’s waste and recycling services that are available to its residents.

Garbage Collection

Garbage is collected weekly in Norfolk County with a limit of 4 bags per household.  To find out when garbage is collected in your area and for other information about weekly garbage disposal, view our Garbage Collection information page. For special pickup dates such as holidays, view our Holiday Collection Schedule.

Recycling

Norfolk County now uses the 2-box ‘Simple Sort’ system. Instead of putting all of our recyclables in or beside a recycling box, recycling must be separated into two separate boxes. Please view our recycling in Norfolk County page for more information.
