Animal Waste

Did you know that animal waste is not permitted in your curbside collection service? Animal waste is harmful to our Municipal curbside collectors and it’s unpleasant when left in public receptacles (e.g., garbage cans, along the trails, or near schools). So double-bag your animal waste and take it to the municipal landfill located 8.5 km south on Highway 63. Animal waste drop-off is free of charge.

Animal waste includes fecal matter, kitty litter, plus soiled wood chips and newspapers.

The landfill sells Green Cones, which retail for $90 and allows you to safely compost animal waste. Although animal waste compost can’t be used for edible gardens, it can be safely used to fertilize trees and shrubs.
