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.
What goes where? Widget – Updates April 2020
This widget has been updated to reflect the minor changes to the blue box program. Starting May 4, our collection contractor will no longer accept plastic bags and film or Styrofoam food and beverage containers in the curbside recycling program. These items are problematic materials to recycle that can damage equipment and easily contaminate other recyclables. Plastic film includes items like shopping bags, saran wrap and Ziploc bags. Styrofoam food and beverage containers include Styrofoam takeout containers, plates, bowls and cups. We are encouraging residents to limit use of these items as much as possible and to dispose of them in the garbage when needed.
