Garbage, Recycling and Compost

Bluewater Recycling Association (BRA) provides weekly garbage and recycling pick-up in Lambton Shores. BRA uses a co-collection system, meaning both garbage and recycling are collected at the same time, using the same truck.

We have many waste disposal options available:

Electronic Waste

Electronic Waste (e-waste) is harmful to the environment when not disposed of properly. Certain electronic items can be dropped off at the Forest or Northville Municipal Offices for proper disposal. There is no fee for this service.
