Payment and Fees

Notice:

All County waste facilities have re-opened with their regular operating hours. Reuse Centres and textile bins will remain closed at all sites until further notice.

As part of the re-opening process, please note the following:
- Sites may be extremely busy. Expect significant delays and wait times. Please be patient.
- If possible, visit waste facilities during the week. Saturdays are typically the busiest day.
- The use of masks or face (mouth/nose) coverings is strongly encouraged.
- Please use credit or debit for payment, preferably the tap function.
- Maintain physical distancing, and be expedient on site.
- Follow staff directions.

The health and safety of the public and staff is the top priority as the waste facility services are being restored. Learn more about waste facility hours and locations.

Residents are encouraged to continue to use the curbside service for regular household waste. Trips to waste facilities should be for the disposal of items/materials that cannot be managed through curbside collection services. Curbside collection of both garbage and blue box recyclables will continue throughout Wellington County. All materials should be set-out to the curb by 7:00 am on your regular collection day. Please be advised that garbage must be in County-issued user pay garbage bags in order to be collected. Learn more about curbside collection.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as the waste facility services are being restored.
