NOTICE - APRIL 9, 2020

 

The Sturgeon Falls Landfill remains closed to the public until further notice. We understand that this may be inconvenient, however this measure is necessary to further support the importance of physical distancing and reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Landfills that remain open provide waste and recycling services in areas where curbside pickup is not available community-wide (Verner, Field, Lavigne, Kipling, River Valley and Muskasong). Access to landfills are only permitted to residents residing in those respective communities. Please practice physical distancing when interacting with the landfill attendant and when unloading your waste. We thank you for your understanding in our efforts to “flatten the curve”.
