Organic Waste

  • There is no scheduled curbside collection service for source separate organic materials and leaf and yard waste collection in your community.
  • We encourage you to use a backyard composter or a digester to manage this type of material. Managing materials as close to the source as possible is usually the best approach from an economic and environmental perspective.
  • Leaves raked onto the street or ditch will not be collected. This poses a danger to pedestrians, bicycles and motorists and can cause drainage problems.
  • Yard waste can also be dropped off at your local Leaf & Yard waste site. See a map of all Leaf and Yard Waste sites here. Note that not all sites can accept all materials, please call ahead to avoid any disappointments and some may charge a nominal fee to drop off your materials.

Hazardous Waste

  • Hazardous materials can be dangerous to people as well as the environment. Be sure to bring your hazardous products to the special depots so that they can be disposed of properly.
  • Residents of Perth East have access to the Stratford site on certain days and at certain times.
    Stratford Landfill
    777 Romeo Street South, Stratford
    See municipal website for details
  • Some retailers take back some materials. For more information on the location and types of materials accepted visit www.orangedrop.ca
  • Agriculture and industry may produce the most hazardous waste by volume and mass, but the biggest threat to the majority of Canadians is our homes. Our closets, cupboards, basements and garages are full of hazardous products, which are also known as household hazardous waste. Products are considered hazardous when they are corrosive, reactive, flammable, toxic and/or radioactive.
  • Dangers associated with a product can be reduced through careful shopping or by using safer alternatives. To get a list of safer alternatives, click here.

Bulky Waste

Some materials are just not made to be disposed of curbside.  Whether you are a resident doing a spring clean up, a renovation project, or you have oversize items to dispose of, you can use a containerized service like those offered by Mars Environmental or you can bring it directly to the local landfill.

 

Your local landfill is:

South Easthope Municipal Landfill

2439 Line 29

  • The local landfill site is typically open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9:00am - 4:00pm, as well as Saturdays from 9:00am - 1:00pm.  See Municipal Website for details.
  • Please call ahead to avoid any disappointments and expect to pay a nominal fee to drop off your materials.
  • We try to keep our lists up to date, but they may be outdated. Send us an email if a site is closed.
