NOTICE Property Owners who rent out their Cottages

Please be advised that when you rent out your cottage, all garbage and recycling becomes your responsibility.  The Township’s Waste By-law sets out that transfer station cards may only be used by the person to whom the pass is issued.  We have prepared a Cottage Renters’ Guide to assist property owners and renters on items that we feel will assist everyone.  If you have any questions, please contact the Municipal Office at 705-636-5941.

Waste Management Cards

Waste Management cards can be picked up from the Transfer Station Attendant; proof of residence is required by either driver’s licence or a utility bill. Each household is permitted to dispose of an allotted 5 bags of refuse per month. A charge of $2.00 for each bag to be disposed of over and above the 5 bag limit shall apply. A bag of refuse can be no larger than 26″ by 36″.  Carry-over of bags from one month to another is not permitted (bags must be used within the allotted month on the disposal card).

Hazardous Waste  – NO HAZARDOUS WASTE DAY IN 2018!  We apologize for the inconvenience and are trying to find solutions on where our ratepayers can take hazardous waste.

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) are products that we find in every home.  In fact, the average home uses between 10-40 kg of hazardous products each year.   Disposing of Household Hazardous Waste differs from how you dispose of normal household garbage. This material is dangerous, and must be handled and disposed of carefully.

To see what items that are accepted on hazardous waste day events, please click here.  Load the acceptable materials into your vehicle. Do not mix any materials. Keep them in their original containers if possible, so we’re aware of what the contents are.

Clear Bags are now in effect

Resident must use clear bags for garbage, black/dark/tinted/coloured/white garbage bags are not accepted. You are permitted one opaque “privacy” bag inside each clear bag. This bag is to be approximately the size of grocery store bag and can be any colour. If you have any questions please see the Transfer Station Attendant.

How will using clear bags increase our recycling diversion?

The clear bag program has been implemented as a cost effective measure to increase diversion of materials from our landfill.  Implementing a clear bag program also improves worker safety and protects transfer station attendants from cutting themselves on sharp objects such as broken glass or needles. The transfer station attendants are able to conduct a quick assessment of the contents within the clear bag(s) to ensure that no recyclable or hazardous items such as oil paint, pharmaceuticals products or corrosive wastes are in the bag.

For residents already doing their best to divert, this program should make no difference except for the color of bag they use. This program is intended to increase participation from households that do not presently recycle material by raising them to the standard of those who already participate.

Do not put unused or expired medication or needles in your garbage or recycling bin, and do not flush them down the toilet or drain.

You can find a list of various locations to bring your medication by clicking here

Most pharmacies will take back medication that they have sold you. Please call your pharmacy for details.

There are many other items that you can bring back to the store that you purchased them at; eye glasses, cell phones and paint, just to name a few! It’s worth a call to check.


We accept your old computers, printers, TV’s, monitors, telephones, speakers, audio/video devices, cameras, fax machines, and projectors. Remember to wipe your devices clean, remove the hard drive, and/or clean your SIM cards.
