Starting March 2, 2015, “Mixed Load Charge” tickets will be issued for loads which contain a discernable amount (over 10%) of recyclable materials. The overall goal of this initiative will be to divert recyclable materials brought to the Mohawk Street Landfill Site for disposal. If the load is found to contain over 10% of recyclable materials, the entire load will be charged at the “Banned Material Rate” of $140.00 per metric tonne.  The hauler will be advised of the increased tipping charge and given the option to separate the recyclable materials or pay the tipping fee.

Thank you for your cooperation and assistance in diverting recyclable materials from disposal and to extend to the operating life span of the Mohawk Street Landfill Site.

If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact City of Brantford at 519-759-4150.


Please be advised that the Mohawk Street Landfill Site is no longer accepting commercial/industrial loads of cover materials. 

Contaminated soil and/or soils generated from site remediation/cleanup activities will still be accepted at the applicable tipping fee rates.  In addition, mixed clearing waste will still be accepted at the applicable tipping fee rate.  

If you require additional information regarding this issue or have other questions concerning the landfill site please contact the City of Brantford, at 519-759-4150.
