Landfill Fees

When you enter the landfill you will need to stop at the weigh scales. Be prepared to pay tipping fees, based on what you are bringing to the landfill. You can pay with cash, debit, Visa or MasterCard. Please note: You may be eligible for Landfill Fee Exemptions.

Most 2022 fees are outlined in our fee charts below (with the exception of when the scales are not operational). If you don’t see your items there, please check out our No Charge Items to see if they qualify for free disposal/recycling.

Sorting your waste prior to going to the landfill could save you money! Ask the scale attendant to help you reduce your tipping fees by taking multiple trips over the scale, or call 311 for more information.

If you deliver a load of waste that is 50 kg or less in a one week period, then no tipping fees will be charged.

If you deliver a load of waste that is between 50 kg to 100 kg in a one week period, then the first 50 kg will be at no charge and the balance will be at the flat rate of $3.25.

If you deliver a load of waste that is over 100 kg in a one week period, the first 50 kg will be at no charge and the balance of the weight will be charged at the tipping fee rate per tonne ($90 per tonne or $9.00 per 100 kg).

Please note, your residential waste must be delivered by you in a private motor vehicle. We track these exemptions based on your vehicle license plate.
