Waste Management Information

Richmond Hill provides weekly curbside collection of recycling (Blue Box) and organics (Green Bin). Garbage is collected every second week and yard waste is collected on scheduled Mondays. Appliances are picked up monthly by appointment. For collection guidelines, York Region Drop-off Depot information or to schedule pickup of a large appliance, please visit the 'Waste Collection' Info section below.
