Garbage Collection & Landfill

"PAY AS YOU THROW" (PAYT) Waste Management Program

The Town of Saugeen Shores has implemented our "Pay As You Throw" (PAYT) garbage collection and waste management program. The Program encompasses garbage collection, recycling and landfill operations.

All residential and commercial properties within Saugeen Shores will be required to purchase and place a Bag Tag on every bag of garbage placed at the curb for collection.

All household garbage must be at the curbside by 7:00 a.m. Garbage must be protected from rodents, animals, insects and birds. The municipality is not responsible for garbage not placed in a proper container. Please do not place animal waste or ashes in your household garbage, as it will not be collected.
