Program Changes 2024

Starting January 1, 2024, Chatham-Kent's recycling program undergoes a significant transformation, transitioning to an Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) model. Circular Materials, a not-for-profit producer responsibility organization, will administer Chatham-Kent's curbside recycling. Read more details in the "Changes to the Blue Box Program" heading below. 

Simultaneously, bulk item collection sees modifications, with a quarterly service separate from weekly garbage limits. Residents can request this service through Recycle Coach, promoting efficiency and flexibility. Read more details in the "Changes to the Bulk Item Collection" heading below.
