Make sure to set out your garbage and recycling by 7:00 a.m. the morning of your pickup. Place the garbage bag(s) beside the curb, making sure they are clearly visible. Please note that due to weather conditions pick up times may vary.
Ensure a bag tag is attached to each garbage bag. The County of Oxford Uses a ‘bag tag’ system which designed to encourage reducing, recycling and re-using. In a “user pay” system residents only pay for the waste they generate, rather than sharing or distributing the costs of curbside collection as part of the County’s tax levy. The cost is $2.00 per garbage bag tag and tags are available for purchase, at local stores and the Township municipal office. There is no tax or mark-up on bag tags, although some vendors may charge a minimum sale fee for debit or credit purchases. There is also no minimum requirement for purchase.
Place your bag tag around the neck of the garbage bag, sticking the ends of the tag to one another. This will help prevent the tags coming off in wet or cold conditions.
