Safe and efficient disposal of unwanted materials.

All loads must be covered when transporting waste to prevent littering and to ensure a clean and healthy environment. Visitors to the Regional Landfill are required to separate and recycle all suitable products and to ensure loads are prevented from being mixed in normal refuse and disposed of improperly.

It's important that you let the scale attendant know everything that’s in your load. This helps ensure the safety of our staff as well as the safety of the environment. In order to maintain low fees and low operational costs, materials must be sorted into designated areas so they can be diverted from the Class II Landfill.

  • All loads must be covered or otherwise secured
  • Operators reserve the right to refuse any load
