Amnesty Days


On amnesty days, the Residential Vehicle Charge for the disposal of residential waste is waived. Other tipping fees will still apply. Please see our Fees and Charges By-law No. 4436 for more information on the tipping fees that are not waived during amnesty. 

Fall 2021 Amnesty Days will be held from September 10 to 12.

Please note: Amnesty days no longer include Household Hazardous Waste Day as Household Hazardous Waste is accepted daily at the Solid Waste Facility and is included in the residential $15.00 minimum fee. Commercial Hazardous waste is not accepted at the Solid Waste Facility. 

Christmas Trees

Christmas Trees can be dropped off at the Solid Waste Facility free of charge during the month of January.
