Transfer Station Cards are available for pickup at the Transfer Station. Please ensure you have proof of residence available. Each household is permitted to dispose of an allotted 5 bags of refuse per month, and carry-over of bags from one month to another is not permitted. A charge of $2.00 for each bag to be disposed of above the 5 bag limit will apply. Bags of refuse are limited to a maximum size of 26” by 36”, and residents must use clear bags for their garbage; black/dark/tinted/coloured/white garbage bags are not accepted. You are also 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.

Commercial businesses are now allotted an additional 5 bags of refuse per month. Please fill out the Commercial Business Request Form and return it to the Municipal Office for approval.

Please visit our By-law page to view the most recent Fees & Charges By-law for up-to-date fees associated with the disposal of specific items. The Transfer Station accepts Cash, Debit, Visa, and Mastercard as payment for tipping fees.

The 2022 Hazardous Waste Day will be held on Saturday, July 9, 2022 from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm.

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. To view a complete list of accepted items, please view the Township’s Household Hazardous Waste Guide.

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.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our Reusable Items Shed is currently closed. We are continuing to monitor the situation and will provide an update once the Reusable Items Shed has been reopened.

The purpose of the Reusable Items Centre is to ensure that items which would normally be put in the garbage are available for use by others. Gently used items can be dropped off within the Reusable Items Shed. There is no charge applied to items that are dropped off or taken from the Reusable Items Shed.

Acceptable items include: small furniture, sporting goods, toys, books, housewares, etc.

Unacceptable items include: hazardous materials, food wastes, liquids, potentially unsanitary items (such as toilets, mattresses, etc.) and bulky items. Clothing, coats, bedding and towels should be bagged and recycled through the Canadian Diabetes Association’s donation bins.

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.

The Township of Perry uses a two stream recycling system, which requires items to be separated into containers and fibres. All recycling must be emptied and rinsed.
