Recycling Service Provider Update

UPDATE: NEW NUMBER 1-888-597-1541

Contact Emterra Environmental at their new number 1-888-597-1541 for any questions about your recycling including missed collections, recycling inquiries, and new blue boxes.
On January 1st, 2024, responsibility for blue box recycling collection and processing transitioned from Peterborough County to producers of packaging and paper products.
Producer Responsibility means producers – the companies that design, create and market products and packaging – are fully responsible for managing and paying for the life cycle of their products and packaging.
With this transition, Peterborough County no longer directly offers blue box recycling services. The only change residents will see through the transition period is a new contact to call when you have questions, or concerns with your blue box pick up or when you need a new blue box.

Questions? Please contact Peterborough County’s Waste Management department
