Garbage and Recycling

Garbage Collection

The Town of Prescott has a residential garbage system. The Town's designated hauler will collect only residential waste in approved, town bags. The curb-side pick-up is each Tuesday, with possible changes to the schedule for statutory holidays. Please check the website or newspaper for changes and updates.

Curbside pick-up is for weekly residential waste that fits into the regulated town bags. For large items that cannot fit into the garbage bags, please contact a local cartage company.  Businesses, industries and institutions are responsible for the disposal of their own waste.

Garbage bags may be purchased at:

  • Town Hall
  • Beach Home Hardware
  • Canadian Tire
  • Giant Tiger
  • O¬īReilly¬īs Your Independent Grocer
  • Mr. Gas

Small plastic bags $0.75 each or package of 10 for $7.50
Large plastic bags $1.50 each or package of 10 for $15.00.
