On the specified Hazardous Waste Day, residents are encouraged to bring hazardous waste such as waste oil, insecticides, pool chemicals, and propane tanks to the Transfer Station.

View our complete list of accepted items: Township’s Household Hazardous Waste Guide.

Kindly remember that the Transfer Station will be busier than usual during this event. Please be patient with our Attendants and other residents.

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.


In an effort to assist property owners, Vacation Rental Kits are available for purchase at the Transfer Station and Municipal Office. The Vacation Rental Kit contains everything a short-term renter needs in order to manage their garbage and recycling for a week, plus it includes a one-time Transfer Station Pass that eliminates the need for a Transfer Station card.

These kits include:

- a brochure of Township's waste management program, which may be a bit different from what they are used to at home;

- 1 clear plastic bag for household garbage;

- 1 clear plastic bag for recyclable containers;

- 1 large paper bag for recycling fibres/papers;

- A map showing the location of the Transfer Station, together with hours of operation;

- Disposal fees and what materials are accepted;

- Information on Campfires and the Township's "No Fireworks" Policy.

Vacation Rental Kits are available for purchase at the Transfer Station and Municipal Office for $5 each, or 10 for $45.

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.

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.

View our Waste Disposal By-law under our By-law Page for additional information.
