New tools make garbage days hard to miss in Dufferin County

May 19, 2016   ·   0 Comments

Dufferin County has made it easier for residents to stay connected about waste collections and programs with new and improved web and mobile tools.

Residents can now search their home address in the new My Schedule tool, available at, and use it to:

• ign up for waste collection reminders by email, phone call, text, or Twitter;

• ownload a personalized collection schedule into an iCal, Google, or Outlook calendar; or

• rint a personalized collection schedule, specific to their address.

Not sure how to properly dispose of something? The new Which Bin? tool allows residents to find out if and how an item can be reused, recycled, composted, taken back or disposed of.

Residents can also download the new mobile app, DufferinWaste, for free on Apple and Android devices. The County will be discontinuing the ‘My Waste’ app launched in 2013 and residents are encouraged to download the new DufferinWaste app for future use.

“With the new DufferinWaste app and reminder service, residents really have the ability to stay connected in the way that’s most convenient for them,” says Councillor Paul Mills, chair of the Public Works Committee. “It makes it simple to remember collection dates for yard waste, bulky items, holiday interruptions, double up days, hazardous and electronic waste events, and everything else our waste programs offer.”
