Q. How do I dispose of sod?
A.

Sod can be accepted for curbside green waste collection as long as it is under 50lbs (23kg) in weight. If you have large quantities we recommend that it is taken to the Landfill Drop-off Depot at 1260 Bensfort Road. Green waste is free of charge for disposal at the Landfill of 100 kgs or less and $45/tonne for amounts over 100 kgs. Hours of operation are Monday-Friday 8am-4:45pm and Saturday 8am-3:45pm.

Q. When will the curbside organics collection start?
A.

Curbside collection of organics continues to be investigated.  Myriad issues have prevented this from moving ahead, including stringent provincial regulations, and high costs.  While we continue to seek a viable, local solution, we will not be able to offer this program in the near future
