Garbage and Recycling

The Municipality of South Dundas has a multi-faceted waste management program. It provides curb side, residential garbage pick-up. Businesses are permitted to take advantage of this pick-up but must comply with the Municipality’s garbage policies (below).

Please note: Each household may place a maximum of two garbage bags per week at curb side. Houses that exceed this limit will be identified to the By-Law Enforcement Officer for follow up.

Any additional garbage bags must be in an authorized garbage bag purchased from various locations in the Municipality:

  • South Dundas Municipal Centre (Morrisburg)
  • Mustard’s Variety (Iroquois)
  • Brinston General Store (Brinston)
  • SDG County Library- Morrisburg Branch, Iroquois Branch and Williamsburg Branch

The price of additional garbage bags is $1.25 per bag.

There is no limit to the amount of recycling that can be placed at curb side; residents are encouraged to recycle applicable materials.

Please note that the South Dundas Garbage Schedule is mailed to each resident annually.
