Waste Reduction Week in Canada occurs the third week of October.  The Township participates in a number of ways. 

  • Treasure Hunt - For 2019 the Scugog Treasure Hunt will be held on Saturday October 26, 2019 from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m.   What is the Treasure Hunt?  Participating households mark items as "Free" and place on their curb or boulevard for others to collect.  This keeps reusable items out of our landfill and reduces our communities environmental footprint.  No sign up required.  Just remember to mark items as FREE and bring in any uncollected items at the end of the day. 
  • Adopt-A-Road and Adopt-A-Park participants organize a clean up for their adopted areas.  
  • In conjunction with Durham Region, the Township may host an E-Waste, HHW and Reuse day.
