Respect the Collect Campaign

The City and County of Peterborough invite residents to join us in “Respect the Collect”, to publicly acknowledge the men and women who clean up the waste we generate each week. Let your garbage, green waste or recycling collector know when they do an excellent job. 

You can follow these waste management guidelines to support your collector:
• properly sort recyclables into Containers and Papers
• keep all your waste containers at 23 kg (50 lb) or less
• pass collection trucks with extreme care
• take hazardous items (i.e. propane tanks) to the Household Hazardous Waste Depot
• wrap sharp objects before placing in the garbage
