Landfill Site/Garbage Pickup

The municipality provides curbside garbage collection to its homes. Please have your bags at the end of your driveway by 7:00 AM. Loose items will not be collected.

Council passed By-law 2008-31 which restricts the garbage bag collection as follows:

  • 2 bags for a residential dwelling
  • 6 bags for a commercial dwelling
  • Weight restriction for each bag is 40 lbs.

The Municipality is encouraging more recycling which will not only prolong the life of the Landfill Site, it is better for the environment. These new policies were enforced in 2009.

The Municipality does provide additional service for weekly garbage pick ups for institutions and businesses who require more frequent pick ups. Each pick up is charged on a monthly basis. Should you require more information on this service please call the Municipal Office.

The landfill Site is located at 40 Proudfoot Road, off Hwy 11 between Powassan and Trout Creek.
