Blue Box Recycling

Curbside recycling collection occurs weekly in the County of Prince Edward. A bag tag is not required for blue box recycling. For more information, please visit the Quinte Waste Solutions website

Recycling boxes must be used for curbside pickup. They can be purchased for $8 at Shire Hall, 332 Picton Main Street, Picton, from 8:30 am – 3:00 pm, Monday – Friday. Damaged blue boxes will be replaced free of charge. Bring your broken blue box to any of our seven Landfill or Transfer Sites and trade it in for a new one.
