Garbage and Recycling

Please see below our new waste management portal! We are still fine-tuning this tool, so if you experience an issue please let us know at or by calling 519-538-1060 ext 1515.

Waste Services handles garbage, recycling, and green bin pickup as well as other waste services for Meaford residents. Our community has been recognized as having one of the highest waste diversion rates in the province, thanks to high participation in our waste diversion programs. Here you can find information on pickup schedules, drop off locations, and what materials belong in the green bin, blue box, or garbage can.

    I really think there should be a garbage can at the skateboard park. It is really terrible to see all the litter in the parking lot. I truly think everyone would put their garbage in a can if there was one easily accessible. Just my opinion ! 😉

    Came home to a rabid racoon in my driveway and called animal control only to be told that I would have to call a pest control company or licensed trapper and pay for it myself, So what exactly do the rate payers get for the taxes they pay and if not for a serious health risk to people's pets and children why do we even have an animal control officer , this is in the town of meaford proper otherwise I could take care of it myself , What are our taxes paying for
