Residents can deliver discarded household items to local landfill sites, at no charge, during the week. The residential tipping fee holiday includes disposal of up to eight passenger/light truck tires (maximum 34 inches with rims removed) each day. There are no limits on other household waste.
Residents are asked to sort their loads for proper disposal and recycling, prior to arriving at the landfill site. Examples of proper sorting categories include blue box recyclables, scrap metal and appliances, furniture, electronics, concrete (no rebar), leaf and yard trimmings and regular household garbage.
Fees for household waste and tires will be waived if delivered in a private motor vehicle. If a resident wants to rent a vehicle or borrow a commercial pickup truck to deliver their household waste, then a form must be completed, submitted and pre-approved by the city prior to delivering their household waste. This offer does not apply to non-residents of Greater Sudbury. Proof of address may be required.
Residents are asked to cover trailers and truck beds when transporting waste to prevent litter.
As of Oct. 1, 2013 hours of operation will switch to winter hours.
Due to increased landfill traffic during this time, residents are advised to expect delays. For more information about the residential tipping fee holiday, call the City of Greater Sudbury at 311 or visit www.greatersudbury.ca/wastemanagement.
