Landfill Identification User Cards

Starting June 1, 2021, Dysart et al ratepayers will begin to receive their 2021 Final Tax Bill. Inside you’ll find your new 2021-2023 Landfill Identification Card, and information about the Municipality and its programs and services.

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.

Request landfill identification user cards.

It is the responsibility of property owners to provide landfill identification user 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.

Disposal fees (as of May 1, 2021)

You are required to pay fees for dropping off certain items.
