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.
