Quinte Waste Solutions introduces 10-bag limit for business recycling

September 28, 2021

Quinte Waste Solutions (QWS) is instituting a limit on the number of recycling bags it will pick up at local businesses.

The change will minimize traffic disruptions associated with collecting large stockpiles of street-side material and will improve the safety of workers collecting the material.

The change will take effect the week of October 18, 2021.

  • QWS will pick up 10 bags of recycling per week at the curbside of businesses.
  • The recycling bags have to be properly sorted with one type of material per bag.
  • Visit the QWS website to learn which items that QWS accepts.
  • If businesses have additional recycling beyond the 10-bag limit, they can take the excess material to a County landfill and transfer site.
  • Visit the County website for more information about the locations, hours, and types of material accepted at the municipal landfill and transfer sites.
  • If you have questions, contact the County at 613.476.2148 extension 1023, 613.962.9108 extension 1023, or email
