Waste Management & Recycling

The Township of Augusta does not have curbside waste/recycling pick up.  Residents are responsible for getting their own waste/recycling to either of our two waste transfer sites where they can dispose of most items FREE of charge.  As per By-Law 3363-2018 all household waste must be in clear bags and under 40 lbProof of residency will be required at both transfer sites.

WASTE DIVERSION 

Recycling and composting reduces the waste that is collected and transported at our Transfer Stations. The more we recycle and compost the higher the waste diversion rate. If we can divert more waste from the transfer station, the township will receive additional funding from Stewardship Ontario to assist in the operation and promotion of recycling freeing up tax payer dollars for other projects.
