Get Ready for the Spring Residential Tipping Fee Holiday Week
Apr 22, 2014
For Immediate Release
Tuesday, April 22, 2014
The City of Greater Sudbury would like to remind everyone the residential tipping fees will be waived at all Greater Sudbury landfill and waste diversion sites during the week of Monday, May 5 to Saturday, May 10, 2014.
Greater Sudbury residents can deliver discarded household items to local landfill sites, at no charge, during the week. The residential tipping fee holiday includes disposal of up to eight passenger/light truck tires (maximum 34 inches with rims removed) each day.
There are no limits on other household waste.
Residents are asked to sort their loads for proper disposal and recycling, prior to arriving at the landfill site. Examples of proper sorting categories include blue box recyclables, scrap metal and appliances, furniture, electronics, concrete (no rebar), leaf and yard trimmings and regular household garbage.
Fees for household waste and tires will be waived if delivered in a private motor vehicle. If a resident wants to rent a vehicle or borrow a commercial pick-up truck to deliver their household waste, then a form must be completed, submitted and pre-approved by the City one week prior to delivering their household waste.
Non-residents of Greater Sudbury are not permitted access to City landfill sites. Proof of address may be required.
Please cover trailers and truck beds when transporting waste to prevent litter.
Please note as of May 1, 2014 our hours of operation will switch to our summer hours. Please visit us Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays 8 am. to 5 p.m.
Due to increased landfill traffic during this time, residents are advised to expect delays. For more information about the residential tipping fee holiday, call the City of Greater Sudbury at 3-1-1 or visit www.greatersudbury.ca/wastemanagement.
