Garbage, Recycling and Compost

With end of the Fall Leaf Pick-Up Program, Lambton Shores residents are reminded that they will be able to continue to take their leaves to the Compost Site until the end of November (weather permitting). The Compost is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. We will post information about the Spring Leaf Pick Up Program to our website once details have been finalized.  

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.

Remove all personal data

Please remove all personal data from any unit prior to bringing it to an e-waste site.

Leaf Pick-up Program - Spring program start date TBD

Lambton Shores operates a Leaf Pick Up Program in the spring and fall at no charge. We will pick up your bagged leaves at the curb during the allotted time frame stated above as time and quantity dictates. The start and end date for the spring program will be announced at a later date. 

Pick-up requirements

  • All leaves must be in brown, paper bags. We do not accept plastic bags.
  • Only leaves will be picked up, no garbage, brush or other yard waste.
  • All bags must be placed at the curb for pick-up.

Please do not rake leaves onto the streets or in ditches. This poses a danger to pedestrians, bicycles and motorists and can cause drainage problems.
