“Mixed Load Charge” tickets will be issued for loads that 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 $180.00 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 the operating life span of the Mohawk Street Landfill Site.

Cover materials now accepted

As of February 1, 2023  loads of commercial/industrial cover materials will be accepted free of charge.

Contaminated soil and soils generated from site remediation or cleanup activities may be accepted at the applicable tipping fee rates. All contaminated soil loads must be approved prior to disposal. Solid Waste Operations staff must review lab results of appropriate testing parameters before disposal can be approved. Please contact the City at 519-759-4150 to review these requirements.
