Waste Reduction Program

A new landfill moderately costs around 5.6 million over 5-7 years just to get it up and running and does not include the price of the land.

Let’s work together to find ways to limit waste and extend the life of our landfills. The Municipality is starting a soft launch in March 2021 with a hard launch of May 1, 2021. After May 1, 2021 household waste will not be picked up for curbside pickup without a bag tag sticker nor will you be allowed to deposit household waste at the landfill without providing your numbered card or having bag tag stickers on your bags of waste.
