Blue Box Recycling Program

King Township provides a weekly recycle collection. All materials for recycling collection must be placed in blue boxes issued by the Township or in approved alternates as outlined in the Township’s waste collection by-law2018-77

To purchase waste containers, you can use our Online Services portal. 

You will have the option to have the containers mailed to you, pick them up from our Municipal Centre, or from any Library Branch during curbside hours.

Exceptions such as cardboard may be placed beside the blue box provided it's flattened, bundled and tied with twine or string (no tape). Bundles must not exceed 20" x 24" x 12". Please do not place any recycling products in plastic bags.

Please ensure that your garbage and blue boxes are visible to the operator (not blocked by parked cars) or on top of snow banks.

Visit the Region of York's website to learn more about the new items you can now add to your blue box.

Important - Did you know that no sorting is required? All recyclables can now be combined into one blue box.
