The Municipality of South Dundas has a blue box and green box recycling program. Both are curb side pick-up but must comply with the Municipality’s recycling policies.

Blue Box collection and Green Box collection are collected on alternate weeks and on the same day as Garbage collection. One week, the Green Box material will be collected; the following week the Blue Box material will be collected. Green Recycling Symbol
