Phase 2B Waste Drop-off

Waste bins have been withdrawn from Phase 2B sites at this time. If any resident that resides in a Phase 2B area requires waste disposal from their residence of a household nature (e.g. furniture, soft furnishings, etc.), the Municipality will waive tipping fees if they provide proof of residence at the scale and use their own vehicle to convey. The deadline for this will be March 1, 2017.
