Disposal Site

DISPOSAL SITE HOURS

The Disposal Site is currently running on Summer Hours. The dump is open Tuesdays from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The Disposal Site will continue to operate regular hours during the COVID-19 pandemic. We ask that residents simply drop off their garbage in the designated areas for proper disposal and avoid socially interacting with others.

We would like to ask that residents make sure that they bring their disposal site permits with them when they attend the site.

You must be a resident of the Township to dump your garbage at the site.  Thank you.

RECYCLING

The recycle bins have two compartments only. Not as much sorting. Paper and Cardboard go on one side and the other recyclable containers will go on the other. These include plastics 1 & 2, tetra and tin cans. Pop cans are also accepted however we encourage you to please drop them off in the O’Connor Fire Department bin, either at the Disposal Site or the Fire Hall or other various locations in Kakabeka Falls.  Glass will continue to go into the separate hole.  A Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) depot has also been set up for you to drop off your TV’s, computer screens, computers, laptops, computer peripheral (keyboards, mice) printers, telephones,  answering machines, pagers, cellphones, speakers and audio/visual equipment.  Tires are also accepted free of charge in the designated areas.  Please remove rims and place in Scrap Metal area.
Fridges, Freezers, Air Conditioners will be charged $20 for disposal to be paid at the Township of O’Connor Municipal Office during regular business hours prior to bringing to the Disposal Site.  Please call ahead should you need to dispose of one.  When disposing of refrigerated units at the O’Connor Disposal Site all doors must be removed from the units before placing them in the designated area and caretaker must be shown receipt of payment.
If you would like a copy of the pamphlet please click on Landfill Pamphlet for a pdf version.
Please drop off your garbage in the proper designated areas which are well marked.
Please remember liquor and wine bottles can now be returned for deposit just like the beer bottles.
PLEASE NOTE: AS PER THE REQUEST OF GFL ENVIRONMENTAL INC.
The Township of O’Connor will be asking that all recyclables (paper, cardboard, cans, and plastic bottles) come loose and no longer in recycling bags. We thank everyone for your cooperation. We would still encourage people to continue to properly separate their disposable items. Recycling helps to divert as much garbage as possible from our site.
Please note that the pop cans, beer and liquor bottles for the Volunteer Fire Department Fundraiser may still be placed in bags.

HAZARDOUS WASTE

In an effort to reduce waste and create a cleaner and greener environment for O’Connor Township and its Disposal Site, we have created a hazardous waste diversion list to help inform the residents of what is considered hazardous waste and possible places where the waste can be diverted to.

Please be cautious of what you throw in your everyday garbage.  Look at what you’re throwing out.  If the container or item has any type of hazard symbol, it is a hazardous waste and must be disposed of properly.  Doing this will not only reduce waste at our landfill, but will also keep O’Connor’s air, water and soil clean.

Please keep all your hazardous waste in its original container and never mix hazardous wastes together.

For any further questions on how to dispose of your hazardous waste properly or for items not listed, or to add hazardous waste sites to the list, please call the Township office at 476-1451 or ask our Disposal Site Caretaker.
