Household Waste and Recycling

Bluewater Recycling Association (BRA) provides curbside pick-up of household waste and recycling for residents of Lucan Biddulph.

Updated Notice (May 12/2022)

Message from Bluewater Recycling Association:

Some residents may experience a change in collection service sequence from now on. Where possible, we use one truck to collect both waste and recyclables, at the same time, albeit in separate compartments in the truck. Waste is delivered to the Twin Creeks Landfill in Watford while the recyclables are brought back to our processing facility in Huron Park.

As a result of some growth in the area, resulting in capacity issues and our requirements to deliver the waste by a certain time at the landfill, it is possible that your WASTE bin will be collected FIRST and your RECYCLING bin may be collected LATER in the day when our truck returns from the landfill with more capacity and time.

COLLECTION SCHEDULE

Report A Missed Collection | Bluewater Recycling Association (jotform.com) (use this link to report)

1. The routes change quite often and you must have your garbage out no later than 7am to guarantee pickup, as he mentioned times change weekly so just because they picked up at 8am last week does not mean that will continue.

2.  If all the neighbours around you have garbage that has been picked up, the driver may have been full and will circle back or you have something in your bin that was refused.

3.  Bluewater Recycling is a curbside pick up only, if the garbage is backed into your driveway they will not pick it up 

Both waste and recycling are picked-up weekly, on the same day. Make sure that your containers are at the curb by 7:00 am on your collection day on your designated side of the street. 

  • Lucan Biddulph Residents Collection Schedule is every FRIDAY. 
  • If your collection falls on a holiday, collection will occur as scheduled, except for Christmas and New Year’s Day. On these days, co
  • collection may be rescheduled on an alternate day such as the Saturday in between.
  • If you have been missed, please report a missed collection to BRA.
COLLECTION CONTAINERS - WHEELIE BINS

Only waste and recycling in "Wheelie Bin" containers provided by BRA will be collected. 

Lucan Biddulph has a user pay program for waste and recycling. Those who produce the least waste pay the least. This is an excellent opportunity for you to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as you can. Residents pay for size of waste bin their household requires.  Please contact the Township Office if you have questions regarding the fees.  If you would you like to order a new bin or exchange it, please contact Bluewater Recycling.
