Styrofoam Depot Collection Pilot Program

The Landfill & Recycling Depot is now accepting Styrofoam packaging material as part of a pilot program aimed at reducing waste in the Town. The pilot program is specific to a limited type of expanded polystyrene foam (type 6 plastic) or Styrofoam product packing. This type of foam is associated with the rigid white block foam used to protect products and equipment (such as electronics) during shipment and transport.

Please note: Styrofoam will not be collected as part of the curbside blue box program, but accepted foam materials are free to drop off with other Blue Box materials at the Waste Disposal Site. *Additional fees may apply to other waste items at the site. 

The pilot program does not accept the following materials: 

  • Coloured foam
  • Take-out containers, food and meat trays, and cups
  • Peanut packaging
  • Toys
  • Pool noodles
  • Construction materials 

When dropping off accepted materials, please ensure the Styrofoam is clean and tape-free. The Styrofoam material collected will be stored at the Site to be densified by a recycling contractor and sent to a recycler to be made into new products such as picture frames. The pilot program is anticipated to run until the end of 2021, with the overall success of the program to be studied for an expanded implementation in 2022 following the pilot program’s conclusion.

COVID 19 Health & Safety Measures

A number of new operational restrictions and safety measures have been implemented to ensure the safe and effective operation of the landfill. Please read the following items carefully:

  • There will be a $12 minimum charge per load (as of Feb 2021)
  • Cash payments will not be accepted (debit or credit only – tap preferred)
  • Staff will be limiting the number of customers into the landfill, and inbound curbside collection trucks will take priority. As a result, please be patient and expect delays
  • No household hazardous waste will be accepted at this time
  • Some diversion programs may be temporarily unavailable, and these materials will be disposed of and charged as garbage 
  • Split charges will not be allowed as a means to reduce the number of transactions, however; customers must still separate materials into designated areas
