Residential Tipping Fee Holiday at Local Landfill and Waste Diversion Sites May 5-10
Apr 28, 2014
For Immediate Release
Monday, April 28, 2014
The City of Greater Sudbury is waiving its residential tipping fees during the week of May 5 to May 10, 2014.
Greater Sudbury residents can deliver discarded household items to local landfill and waste diversion sites, at no charge, during the week. The 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, prior to arriving at the landfill and waste diversion site. Examples of proper sorting categories include 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 this week. 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.
If you plan on visiting City landfill sites during other times of the year, please remember that disposal and processing requirements and fees have changed.
