Residential Tipping Fee Holiday at Local Landfill and Waste Diversion Sites
Apr 23, 2018
Residents are reminded that residential tipping fees will be waived at all Greater Sudbury landfill and waste diversion sites from Monday, May 7, to Saturday, May 12, 2018.
Greater Sudbury residents can deliver discarded household items to local landfill sites free of charge during the above-noted week.
The residential tipping fee holiday week 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, leaf and yard trimmings, and regular household garbage.
Fees for household waste and tires will be waived if they are delivered in a private motor vehicle. Residents who choose to rent a vehicle or borrow a commercial pickup truck to deliver their household waste must complete a Rental Vehicle or Commercial Pickup Truck Approval Form. This form must be submitted to the City for approval by Monday, April 30, 2018.
Non-residents of Greater Sudbury are not permitted access to City landfill sites. Proof of address may be required.
Residents can prevent littering by covering trailers and truck beds when transporting waste.
Due to increased landfill traffic during the tipping fee holiday week, delays may occur.
