Peterborough, ON - The City of Peterborough has cancelled the Reusable Exchange Weekend scheduled for June 12 to 14, 2020.

This event is typically held monthly throughout the summer. It helps to redirect items away from the landfill. Residents are asked to keep reusable items until this event can be held again.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, the safety of our community is our top priority,” said Councillor Gary Baldwin, Chair of Waste Management. “This is a popular event to reduce, reuse and recycle. We will continue to monitor the situation and look forward to reinstating the Reusable Exchange Weekend when we can do so safely.”  

For more details, please call our Waste Management Division at 742-7777 ext. 1657.
