Waste Disposal & Recycling

Stack of crushed cans for recycling.

We call our  waste disposal and recycling centre the Transfer Station and it's located at 311 Bailey Line Road, 1.5 km down the road past the municipal complex. We're careful about waste disposal here in the township and we go to a lot of trouble to keep things green, clean and economical. Our mandatory separation and recycling policy keeps waste to a minimum, while maximizing the material that goes out for recycling. Following the rules is easy when you understand what we accept at our transfer station and how it needs to be prepared. 

 

Note: If you bring materials to the transfer station in bags, the bags need to be clear. This lets us sort and handle materials properly after you're gone. Sorry, but we can't accept anything in standard black or green garbage bags.

 

Metal: We accept cans, tin foil and other household metal waste. The cans don't need to be crushed (we do that at the transfer station), but cans and foil do need to be washed clean and dry. We store recycled material for months at a time before we have enough to make shipping worthwhile, so cleanliness counts.

 

Plastics: We accept all plastics as long as they're clean, dry and sorted by number. Bring plastics #1 through #7 to the transfer station and the attendants will help you put them in the right place. Pre-sorting your plastic at home make things go smoothly when you get here.

 

Glass: All glass is accepted, including coloured glass and old light bulbs. No need to separate glass by colours. As long as the glass is clean, you're good.

 

Paper & Cardboard: Both these are accepted, just keep paper and cardboard separate from other recyclables. Tie paper and cardboard in bundles or deliver it in bags or boxes.

 

Non-Recycleables: Separate kitchen wastes and non-sortable plastics.  If you bring non-recyclables to the transfer station, it must be in clear plastic bags. We need to see what's inside.

 

What We Can't Take: Electronics, non-household scrap metal, appliances, vehicles. All of these are accepted at the wrecking yard just west of Mindemoya. Turn south from highway #542 at Monument Corners. The scrap yard comes up on the right. Click here for map.
