Waste Management Master Plan

The Municipalities of Bayham and Central Elgin and the Township of Malahide (collectively referred to as Municipalities) teamed up to develop a Waste Management Master Plan (Plan). Embedded within this plan is a Waste Recycling Strategy (Strategy) that deals specifically with Blue Box wastes.

Tire Recycling

Community Recycling Centre
NEW   "Effective January 1, 2017" Community Recycling Centre
The Township of Malahide has entered into an Agreement with the City of St. Thomas for the use of their Community Recycling Centre effective January 1, 2017.  Malahide Residents will be able to recycle used tires free of charge at the Community Recycling Centre, 330 South Edgeware Road, St. Thomas, Ontario.   Phone:  519-631-1680 ext. 4258.


The Township offers composters at cost, available at the Township Office.
Putting garden and kitchen material in a compost bin removes these materials from curbside waste collection and saves landfill space. Approximately 30% of household waste in Ontario is consists of yard material or food waste that is compostable.  Composting reduces greenhouse gases that are produced when organic material decomposes in a landfill without oxygen.

Garbage & Recycling

In 2011, the Township of Malahide established a new Integrated Waste Management Plan to guide our waste management strategies for the next 20 years. The goals of the Plan include providing sustainable services that also result in increased diversion of waste from landfill.
Bag Tag System
The following are the key components of this new bag tag system:
  • Each eligible assessed residential/commercial unit/property will be provided an amount of bag tags equal to approximately 1.3 tags per week (60 tags for 2019).
