“Greater Sudbury residents can deliver discarded household items to local landfill sites, at no charge, during the week,” a release said. “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, but residents are asked to sort their loads for proper disposal and recycling before they arrive. 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 one week prior to delivering their household waste.
Proof of address may be required, since the offer is open to city residents only. Trailers and truck beds should be covered when transporting waste to prevent litter. The landfills are open Monday to Friday, from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m-5 p.m.
Due to increased traffic during the week, residents should expect delays. For more information about the residential tipping fee holiday, call 311 or visit www.greatersudbury.ca/wastemanagement.
