Sign Recycling Program
The Regional Municipality of Durham has launched a program to recycle all temporary signs made of corrugated plastic, plastic film and paperboard to help keep these materials out of landfill.
Acceptable signs include all election signs and any other temporary signs, including real estate signs made from corrugated plastic, plastic film or paperboard. Wooden stakes and wire mounts are also accepted.
Signs may be dropped off at any of Durham Region's waste management facilities:
- Brock Waste Management Facility, Sideroad 17, Brock
- Oshawa Waste Management Facility, 1640 Ritson Rd. N. Oshawa
- Port Perry Waste Management Facility, 1623 Reach St., Scugog
Loads containing only acceptable signs will be accepted free of charge. If loads of signs are delivered mixed with other waste materials, the regular disposal fee of $120 per 1,000 kgs will apply. Facility staff will direct participants to a dedicated area where signs will be collected for recycling.
