2020 Landfill Fees  (Effective January 1, 2020)  

Please note the residential rate is$10/load, unless over 500kg. Loads over 500kg will be charged by weight.

Please also note 2020 commercial rate $100/tonne.  UNSECURED LOADS are subject to additional handling fees. 

Landfill staff reserves the right to reject materials that pose safety concerns. 

Materials such as plastic pipe and wood >1 inch thickness may not exceed 6 feet in length, as they pose a safety risk to staff and equipment when compacting. (Diverted clean wood and trees do not have length restrictions because the equipment does not travel across these materials)
