Waste Management and Recycling

Garbage Collection 

It is the responsibility of the homeowner or tenant to place household garbage at the roadway for pick-up the morning of your scheduled pick-up (8:00 am) and to ensure that the garbage is secure until such time the pick-up occurs. There is a 5 bag limit and the bags should not weigh more than 35 lbs. each. Garbage containers that can be removed from the roadside or a small tarpaulin to cover the garbage can deter birds and small animals from scattering debris.  Please note that household garbage only will be picked up.  Larger items such as chairs, mattresses, etc. will not be picked up but can be brought to the Landfill site for free.

Any questions or concerns please contact the municipal office.

Waste Management - Tipping Fees

Tippings fees for construction debris and "untagged" refrigeration units are in place and are enforced. Prior to dumping, it is the resident's responsibility to obtain a tipping fee receipt.  Tipping fee permits are available at the Municipal Office during regular office hours and at the Hagar General Store at 7147 Hwy 17 E in Hagar. 

There is no limit of tires accepted at one time from residential households within the municipality. The three (3) acceptable categories of tires are as follows: Passenger Tires/Light Truck Tires; Medium Truck Tires; Off-Road Tires.
