By reducing, reusing and recycling, you help protect the environment, extend the lifespans of our landfills, lower greenhouse gas emissions improving air quality, and create useful recycling and compost products conserving natural resources.
Special Notices – Temporary COVID-19 Precautions (as of July 9, 2020)
Cash transactions are prohibited until further notice.
Payments by debit card or credit card can be made at Haliburton Landfill, Harcourt Landfill, and West Guilford Landfill.
The use of existing business charge accounts is permitted for the disposal of construction and demolition waste at Haliburton Landfill, Harcourt Landfill, and West Guilford Landfill.
» Identification Cards «
Landfill user identification cards must be shown at all Dysart et al landfill sites.
Two free landfill ID cards are inserted with the final tax bill for each business or assessed parcel of land every two years. If you are a property owner, you will receive replacement cards every two years. Our Policy on landfill cards can be found here.
Have you lost your landfill cards?
Two free replacement cards may be issued within the two year period should the first set be misplaced. However, beyond that all replacement landfill ID cards are an additional $25.00 per card required.
While it is the responsibility of property owners to provide landfill ID cards to their tenants, temporary cards may be obtained by owners, occupants or tenants by providing a $25.00 deposit, which will be refunded when the card is returned within a set amount of time. In order to issue a temporary card, we require proof of occupancy by provision of sufficient information to allow staff to identify the parcel of land in question.
» Guide for Renters «
One time landfill passes for renters are available for purchase.
They can be purchased at all landfill sites. (During the COVID-19 global pandemic, one time landfill passes can NOT be purchased at Dysart’s Administrative Offices).
Passes are $2.00 each and entitle renters to dispose of one bag of waste and unlimited recycling. A charge of $2.00 per additional bag of waste will be applied.
» Credit Accounts «
To set up a credit account a Credit Application must be completed and submitted to the Treasury Department in advance for pre-approval. View the credit application form here.
» Environment and Conservation Committee «
Several initiatives have been developed in partnership with the Department of Public Works and the Environment and Conservation Committee. Members of the Committee and municipal staff attended various landfills throughout the past year with the goal of reaching out to residents to educate and encourage waste reduction and better recycling habits.
Diversion is also being profiled as the Environment and Conservation Committee has demonstrated some unique projects that have been created out of diverted landfill materials including our annual Re-purposing Competition.
