The City of Sault Ste. Marie reminds residents that amendments to the collection day for recycling will commence the week of November 4, 2019. Garbage and recycling collection will occur on different days. While the garbage collection day will remain the same, recycling collection will change to the next business day after waste collection. Below outlines the amended scheduling changes:

Waste Collection Day Recycling Collection Day
Monday Tuesday
Tuesday Wednesday
Wednesday Thursday
Thursday Friday
Friday Monday


As the City has moved to automated garbage collection, the change in the recycling schedule helps to facilitate space at the width of resident’s driveways particularly in the winter months. For more information visit or contact Public Works at 705-759-5201.
