Residential tipping fees will be waived at all Greater Sudbury landfill and waste diversion sites from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23 to Friday, Sept. 27, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28.

Greater Sudbury residents can deliver discarded household items to local landfill sites free of charge during the above-noted week.

The residential tipping fee holiday week includes disposal of up to ten passenger/light truck tires 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, leaf and yard trimmings and regular household garbage.

Fees for household waste will be waived if they are delivered in a private motor vehicle. 

Residents who rent a vehicle or borrow a commercial pickup truck to deliver their household waste must complete a Rental Vehicle Approval Form or a Commercial Pickup Truck Approval Form. 

This form must be submitted to the City for approval by Sept. 16.

Locations include:

  • Sudbury Landfill and Waste Diversion Site, 2870 The Kingsway, Sudbury
  • Hanmer Landfill and Waste Diversion Site, 900 Landfill Site Rd., off Gravel Drive, Hanmer
  • Azilda Landfill and Waste Diversion Site, Montee Rouleau, Azilda 
  • Walden Small Vehicle Transfer Site, 120 McCharles Lake Rd.

Landfill sites are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23, to Friday, Sept. 27, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28.

Non-residents of Greater Sudbury are not permitted access to City landfill sites. Proof of address may be required.

To prevent littering, please cover trailers and truck beds when transporting waste.

Due to increased landfill traffic during the tipping fee holiday week, residents may experience delays.
