The above list is a consolidation only.. Visit to review the Sanitary Landfill Site Bylaw No. 405 which contains the entire bylaw, including fees and charges. 

The weight of materials delivered to the landfill or transfer station site, on which fees are based, will be determined by:

  • Measuring the weight on the scale provided at the landfill or transfer station site; or
  • In the event that the scale provided is not operational, weight will be estimated by the scale attendant.
