Hours of Operation during the COVID19 Pandemic

Beginning Tuesday, May 12, 2020, the South Bruce Peninsula Landfill Site will be expanding its hours and reopening to the public. The landfill site will be open Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday from 8:30am – 12:00 noon and 1:00pm – 5:00pm. The only acceptable payment methods will be debit “tap” or Town charge account for contractors. Contractors without accounts must call Town Hall to set up an account. No cash or regular debit will be accepted. You will be turned away from the gate if you do not have the appropriate payment method. The health and safety of everyone is of the utmost importance.

The landfill site will also be open Victoria Day on Monday, May 18, 2020 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.

The number of vehicles on site may be limited to make sure everyone is following physical distancing rules, staying at least two metres away from others. Vehicle line-ups and delays due to high demand are to be expected as we reopen this facility.

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.    

 

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.

The Town is a registered collector through the Ontario Tire Stewardship Program, a used tire program established to divert used on-road and off-road tires supplied to the Ontario market. The Town is collecting off-rim tires from residents at the Amabel Landfill Site free of charge; there is still a charge for tires left on the rim.
