Hours of Operation

We continue to monitor the health situation created by COVID19.  In an effort to mitigate the spread of the virus while protecting both the public and our employees, the landfill site will be open only to contractors with existing accounts.  The landfill will be open Fridays only from 8:30 am - 12:00 noon and from 1:00 to 5:00 pm with the gates closing 15 minutes before each closing time.  The landfill site will not accept waste from the residential community.  Residential curbside pick-up will continue.  The requirement for bag tags remains in place for anything beyond one bag. 

Please note that due to the Good Friday / Easter holiday, the landfill will be closed on Friday, April 10, 2020.

News Release regarding changes to landfill operations due to COVID19 - April 1, 2020

 

The Landfill Site will close the gates to incoming traffic 15 minutes prior to every closing time to allow patrons already within the site to un-load and exit the site by the closing times.

For information on the rules and regulations of the landfill, view the Waste Management By-Law.

For landfill rates and tipping fees, view the Appendix E of the Town's Fee By-Law.  The Landfill Site accepts cash, cheque and debit cards.  

 

Mattress Disposal and Recycling

The Public Works Department has initiated a mattress recycling program to divert this bulky material out of the landfill.  While there is still a cost to ratepayers to dispose of their mattresses at the landfill, the tipping fees cover the cost to transport the mattresses to the facility where they will be recycled.  The tipping fee to dispose of mattresses is posted at the landfill, and is included within the Fee By-Law, posted above.
