Waste Facilities

Our five transfer stations and one active landfill site are available to all residents and businesses in the County of Wellington (excludes City of Guelph residents).

A transfer station may take almost any material that a landfill will take, but in smaller quantities that will fit in a pickup truck or small utility trailer. Site attendants have the authority to turn loads away that are too large for their facility to accommodate.

Hours and Locations

Note: all County waste facilities are closed on Sunday, Monday and statutory holidays.
