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 be found on this site, or in the 2020 Waste Collection Guide. The Collection Guide was mailed to every home in Norfolk County. Collection Guides are also available at any Norfolk County Customer Service Centre or Library. The guide details important and valuable information regarding the County’s waste and recycling services that are available to its residents.
Safe Waste Disposal Guidelines for Residents during COVID-19
- Do NOT place used rubber gloves, face masks, tissues and napkins, in your recycling box. These items should be placed in your GARBAGE. Wash your hands afterwards.
- Bag all waste. Do not place waste loosely in garbage containers
- If you’re sick: place ANY item that has come into contact with your mouth, nose or eyes into the garbage – even items that you normally place into your Recycling Boxes (eg. water/beverage bottles, pop cans, milk/juice cartons, etc.).
Garbage is collected weekly in Norfolk County with a limit of 4 bags per household. To find out about other information about weekly garbage disposal, view our Garbage Collection information page. For special pickup dates such as holidays, view our Holiday Collection Schedule. All garbage must be bagged, including garbage in cans. Any garbage that isn’t bagged will not be collected.
Please note: As of December 1, Norfolk County will no longer be accepting bagged recycling. You must use the 2-box ‘Simple Sort’ system. Please view our recycling in Norfolk County page for more information.
