Construction and Demolition

SWS logoMaterials known as C and D waste (drywall, shingles, bricks, wood, metals etc.) are accepted as regular waste at County facilities. All sites will accept small quantities, but larger loads must go to Riverstown.

General waste fees apply:

  • $15 per carload, $30 per pickup truck or trailer load at sites without scales
  • $75 per metric tonne at scaled facilities

Please consider recycling opportunities during renovation or construction projects. If you are not sure of what to do with a material, visit the County's Recyclopedia or Wellington Reuses website. When possible, segregate the materials so that recycling opportunities can be maximized.

Some construction or renovation materials need special preparation and arrangements before bringing to a County waste facility:
