Solid Waste



Families, Groups, Organizations and Individuals Welcome!

The number of conscientious South Frontenac residents taking part in this important week is growing yearly but we still need you! This is a great time to respect our wonderful surroundings by ensuring its beauty remains. Pick an area and make a day of it, gather family and friends for a few hours in the outdoors helping our environment. Rubbish is not only unsightly but  as a terrible adverse effect on our waterways and wildlife. Let our children’s legacy be an environment that shows that we care!

Pitch-In bags will be available beginning April 9th at both Township offices and stores that currently sell South Frontenac bag tags. Filled bags will be collected on your regular collection day the week of April 23rd. Call or drop in to Public Works (613 376-3027 x 4330) to register your group and arrange for excess pickup if necessary.

Diverting more of our waste to recycling and composting will extend the life of our landfills and reduce costs to the Township and its taxpayers. Diversion will also help to preserve our environment and prevent land contamination. In 2008, the Township Council set the target of diverting 50% of our waste from landfill. To achieve this target, the Township provides a number of Waste Management services:
