Receiving Waste Collection Schedule from OVWRC

February 29th, 2016 – The 2016/2017 Collection Schedules are being mailed out the first week of March to residents in Petawawa, Pembroke and Laurentian Valley. The annual calendar, distributed by the Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre on behalf of the Municipalities, outlines collection days for waste, recycling and green carts as well as special collections such as leaf and yard waste and Spring and Fall bulky item.

The Collection Schedules begin April 1st. The layout and design of the schedules is the same as previous years and there are no program changes to note. Residents are encouraged to review the calendar to ensure they are meeting all the requirements when setting material at the curb or roadside for collection.

Proper set-out of materials ensures items are not left behind. Dave Unrau, Director of Public Works for the Town of Petawawa explains one example of this. “Residential recycling is accepted loose in the yellow bin, blue box or other reusable container. If recyclables are placed out in plastic bags they will not be collected. The contractor will leave a sticker behind explaining why material was left behind.”

Other requirements such as clearance around the green cart, proper distance from the road and how to properly sort recycling are all outlined in the collection schedule. “It’s a good idea for residents review this calendar every year – it’s a good refresher, sometimes we forget that milk cartons go in the yellow bin!” Comments Mr. Unrau.

While residents in Pembroke and Laurentian Valley will see no collection day changes there are minor changes to collection days in Petawawa. Residents can refer to the map on the schedule to verify their collection day.
Copies of the schedules will be delivered by March 11th. Copies are also available at Municipal Offices or the Centre’s website at
