Collection schedule

Bluewater Recycling Association (BRA) provides weekly, curbside recycling collection in Lambton Shores. BRA uses a co-collection system. This means that the same truck collects both garbage and recycling.

View the Bluewater Recycling Association Collection Status for information on cancelled or delayed pick-ups.

Holiday collection

If your collection day falls on a holiday, collection will take place as scheduled, except for Christmas Day and New Year's Day, when collection may be rescheduled.

Pick-up information

Place all recyclable materials inside your wheelie bin with the blue lid for pick-up. Place your recycling bin at the curb on your assigned side of the street by 7:00 am on your collection day.

Please do not place your bin behind an obstacle where you cannot clearly see it from the road. For example:

  • Behind a snowdrift
  • Hidden in tall grass
  • Behind a hedge

Report a missed pick-up

You can report a missed pick-up online, or call BRA at 1-800-265-9799 ext. 228, if you have not had your collection picked up on your scheduled day.
