Residential Garbage and Recycling - Bag Tag Program

Residents only pay for what they generate and are encouraged to reduce, re-use, & recycle!

 

The Town of Ingersoll uses Oxford County's user-pay system for curbside garbage & recycling waste collection. This means that costs for curbside waste have been removed from the municipal taxes.
