Waste Management and Recycling

The Municipality of Hastings Highlands provides depot service for the collection of all waste, including garbage and recycling. Our waste management operations are governed by provincial legislation, the Municipality of Hastings Highlands Waste Management Bylaw and Environmental Compliance Approval (ECA) for each waste management site. Non‐bagged brush, furniture, appliances and other materials must be taken to a waste management site during normal hours per the schedule below and may be subject to tipping fees.

A circular economy today for a waste-free tomorrow.

To help create a waste-free Ontario, businesses that produce batteries, electronics, tires and hazardous and special products are obligated to provide collection sites across the province for the public to drop off these materials once they’re finished using them. Materials collected at these sites are reused, refurbished, recycled or properly disposed of to keep them out of landfill, recover valuable resources and protect our environment.

The Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (RPRA) is the regulator mandated by the Government of Ontario to enforce the province’s circular economy laws.
