Events and Programs

Details of events and programs that run at our 6th Line Transfer Station are indicated and updated below.

The Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen launched a Garbage Bag Program in 2021.

This mandatory program has shown to have a positive impact on keeping recyclable materials out of landfills while helping to protect the environment.

Keep it simple. Sort your recyclable materials properly, compost when possible, and throw away the remaining waste. Protecting our planet is important for our present and for our future.


Bag tags will continue to be required for disposal of garbage in a clear bag, or just a privacy bag for both curbside collection, or at the Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Transfer Stations.


Important Dates

  • January 1, 2021: Clear Garbage Bag Program begins

This is the unofficial start to using clear garbage bags for household garbage. Residents will begin using clear garbage bags for their curbside collection and for disposal at all Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Transfer Stations. 

  • July 1, 2021: Clear Garbage Bag Program becomes mandatory

This is the official start to using clear garbage bags for household garbage. Recyclable material must be removed from garbage bags. This becomes mandatory for curbside collection and for disposal at all Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Transfer Stations.

How to begin:

Program begins!

The unofficial Clear Garbage Bag Program begins January 1, 2021.

The official Clear Garbage Bag Program will become mandatory July 1, 2021.

Sorting your material!

Properly sort your recyclable materials into your blue boxes (fibres bin and containers bin). We highly encourage composting when possible either in your own backyard or by taking your loose compost and organic materials to the 6th Line Transfer Station. Place all other waste into your clear garbage bag. If your bag contains more than 10% recyclable material, collectors have the right to refuse it.

Placing your materials curbside!

Garbage may be set out for collection in the following ways:

  • Place the clear bags (30lbs or less) in a garbage can - One (1) privacy bag can be included in your clear bag.
  • In clear bags (30lbs or less) - One (1) privacy bag can be included in your clear bag.
  • In a privacy bag: a privacy bag is a small grocery sized bag which may be opaque (non see-through) to shield private items.

If you only produce as much garbage as would fit within your privacy bag, the privacy bag can be left at the curb for collection or dropped off at the Transfer Station without placing it inside of a clear bag. Garbage tags are required for a privacy bag on just as they are for a full (30lbs) clear garbage bag.

The Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen is interested in improving resident access and participation in deposit return systems in order to reduce these containers from entering the Blue Box system. The Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen is interested in partnering with local organizations to provide “depot” sites at Municipal waste facilities. 

The outcomes of this partnership are to:

  • Build community relationships
  • Increase residential access to appropriate provincial deposit return recycling systems
  • Improve the awareness of recycling within the County of Peterborough
  • Provide funding for community partner

Electronic recycling is available at 900 Bel Twp 6th Line, at the 6th Line Transfer Station year round.

Household hazardous waste does not belong in the garbage or recycling. Some products are identified with hazard symbols, others such as make-up, soaps, and fluorescent tubes or bulbs are not. These items should be taken to the 6th Line transfer station for disposal.

We do not accept sharps (needles, syringes, and lancets) or medications (prescription, over-the-counter, vitamins, and supplements) at our Household Hazardous Waste depots. Please bring all these items to a pharmacy for free safe disposal. For more information on this program, please visit the Heath Products Stewardship Association website.
