E-Waste Days

All 2019 E-Waste Events have been completed. Please stay tuned for the 2020 event dates.

Curbside Giveaway Days

During Curbside Giveaway Days, Aurora residents are invited to place unwanted, gently used items clearly labelled FREE at the curb for other residents to take for their own use, free of charge. This helps divert unwanted items out of landfill. All uncollected items should be removed from the curb after 5 p.m. 

Stay tuned for 2020 dates.
