Guidelines for the landfills
Waste loads must be tarped and secure to prevent littering.
Charges apply to all loads of waste brought to the landfills.
Clean fill disposal requirements have changed (a soil analysis test may be required before disposal). Please refer to the Landfill Rates page for more information, or contact 311.
City landfills are industrial worksites with large equipment, such as compactors and garbage trucks, continuously moving around. We take our responsibility seriously to keep everyone on the landfill safe. Before you head to the landfill, check our safety tips. And for more information about The City's Landfills visit our FAQs.
