Ecowaste Temporary Closure to C&D Materials

Categories:

Effective, Saturday, December 5, 2016, Ecowaste Landfill will not be accepting construction and demolition materials for disposal in the landfill.  This temporary closure will be in effect until December 31 2015.  Ecowaste will resume accepting materials for landfill disposal again on January 2 2016.

This closure is required as we have reached our permitted limit based on the annual volume approved in our operating permit with the Ministry of Environment.   This annual volume is reset at the beginning of each year.

For clarity, this closure means we will not be accepting the following materials between December 5 and December 31 2016:

  • Construction Demolition and Land Clearing Debris
  • Mixed Roofing
  • Treated Lumber
  • Insulation
  • Fill soil with rubble

During this time we will continue to accept:

  • Yard waste and trimmings
  • Clean soils
  • Clean asphalt shingles
  • Clean concrete
  • Clean and select wood
  • Metals, appliances and cardboard.

This closure will affect our commercial, industrial and residential customers.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
