Garbage and Recycling

York Region processes residential recycling and garbage for the nine local municipalities and manages waste depots where residents can drop off items for reuse, recycling or disposal. 

York Region does not collect recycling or garbage from your home or building.

If you have questions about your garbage and recycling pickup, contact your local municipality.

What is a Circular Economy?

It is a shift from a throw-away to a circular mindset to extend the lifecycle of goods, food and resources through better design and continuous reuse, so nothing goes to waste.
