Landfill hours extended beginning May 5

(Fort McMurray, AB – May 4, 2020) – The Municipality will be extending the hours of operation at the Fort McMurray Regional Landfill on May 5, 2020. 

Extended hours of operation: 7:15 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., seven days a week

Previous hours of operation: 8:15 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., seven days a week.

The extension of hours will remain in effect until further notice. Fees for residential and commercial waste have been waived until further notice.  

Segregate your loads

Segregating your loads by grouping similar items together before arriving at the landfill. This will reduce wait and offloading times at the landfill as operations staff will not have to use additional resources to separate material onsite, creating delays for users.

Tarp your load

For everyone’s safety, please be sure to tarp or secure your load before taking it to the landfill. It’s required by law that every load being transported over a public roadway be covered or secured in a manner to prevent any debris from falling out of the vehicle. 

Stay tuned for more updates

As traffic increases, hours of operation may be extended.
