Residents of Greater Sudbury are invited to dispose of their household items free of charge at local landfill and waste diversion sites between Sept. 23 and Sept. 27 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Sept. 28 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This promotion is only available to residents of Greater Sudbury who deliver their waste in a private motor vehicle. Proof of address may be required.
The residential tipping fee holiday, as it is referred to in a press release, allows for the disposal of up to ten passenger/ light truck tires each day, but places no other limits as to how much household waste can be delivered.
Waste is to be sorted for proper disposal and recycling before 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.
To prevent littering, the City asks that residents cover all trailers and truck beds when transporting waste.
Residents may experience delays on-site due to increased landfill traffic during the tipping fee holiday.
Participating locations are as follows:
- 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., off Old Hwy 17 West, Naughton)
