Garbage and Recycling



The Town of Whitby provides curbside residential waste collection services to Whitby residents. This includes residual garbage, green bin organics, yard waste, and a special collection program for metals, tires, and other bulky items. The Region of Durham provides blue box recycling collection service.

Residents in even numbered areas (Monday Area 2, Tuesday Area 4, Wednesday Area 6, Thursday Area 8, and Friday Area 10) will receive their last yard waste collection for the year during the second week of December (7-11) rather than the last week of November.
