Landfill Identification User Cards

Dysart's 2023-2025 Landfill Identification User Cards (they are purple) were mailed to all Dysart ratepayers inside the June 2023 tax bill. All ratepayers received this mailing, even if auto-paying property taxes.

Landfill identification user cards must be shown at all Dysart et al landfill sites.

Two free landfill identification user 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.

Lost your landfill identification user card?

Two free replacement landfill identification user cards may be issued within the two year period, should the first set be misplaced. However, beyond that all replacement landfill identification user cards are an additional $25.00 per card required.
