The Township of Beckwith provides weekly curbside collection of residential waste and recycling for single family homes.
Household garbage and recycling collection takes place on Monday for all residents living west of Highway #15 and Tuesday for all residents living east of Highway #15. Please note the only time collection is interrupted is on the statutory holidays of Christmas or New Year’s Day.
Pick-up times for curbside garbage and recycling may vary from week to week; residents should have their garbage and recycling at the curbside by 7:00 a.m. on their scheduled day for curbside collection.
Each garbage bag must be tagged with 1 Township of Beckwith sticker in a visible place. Residents receive an annual allotment of 80 stickers each calendar year. Additional tags may be purchased at a price of $2.00 per sticker. Stickers are available at the Municipal Office at the start of January. Residents, who are unable to come pick up their allotment, must provide written permission to another person.
