General Information – Landfill and Waste Management
» 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.
» 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. A copy of the credit application can be found here.
» The Cottage Kit «
Cottage Kits are available for purchase at each Landfill Kiosk and at the Municipal Office. They are a great way to ensure that people renting your cottage manage their garbage and recycling properly.
The Cottage Kit contains a one-time use Landfill Pass, recycling bags, a garbage bag, landfill location and hours, and much more. Cottage Kits are available at the Municipal Office or any of the Dysart et al landfill sites for $3.00 each or $25.00 for ten kits.
» 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.
