Garbage and Recycling
The Township of Mapleton's garbage and recycling services are managed by Wellington County Solid Waste Services. Curbside collection of blue box recyclables and green bin organics is on a weekly basis, while curbside collection of user pay garbage bags is on a bi-weekly basis. For the current rural collection schedule, map and garbage fact sheets please visit Wellington County's Solid Waste Services website.
All materials should be set-out to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
User Pay Garbage System
The County has a full user pay system for garbage. There is a fee for every bag of garbage picked up at curbside or dropped off at a waste facility. This system encourages people to practice the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) and gives them some control over how much they want to spend on their garbage each week. Any item which does not fit within a user pay garbage bag will not be collected. Larger items may be taken to any County waste facility (fees apply). User-pay garbage bag distributors in the Township of Mapleton include:
- Alma General Store
- Daisy Mart
- Drayton Freshmart
- Mar-Span Home Building Centre
- Rothsay Waste Facility
- TEBs Convenience Plus
- Wallenstien General Store
An up-to-date list of bag distributors can also be found at Wellington County Garbage and Recycling
