Labour Day will affect Blue Box collections

Regular collection moved to next day Sept. 3 to 8

Residents of Durham are reminded of changes to scheduled curbside blue box collection due to the Labour Day holiday.

The changes will be in effect between Sept. 3 to 8. These changes are taking place due to the Labour Day holiday.

Residents in the City of Oshawa and the Town of Whitby will temporarily have their blue box collection moved to the next day.

Garbage and green bin collection for Oshawa and Whitby residents is the responsibility of the individual municipalities, not the Region of Durham. These residents are asked to check their waste calendars or contact their local municipality regarding collection of these items.

Residents are reminded to have blue box materials at the curb by 7 a.m. on the day of collection.
