Trail Waste Facility re-opened today

OTTAWA – The Trail Waste Facility reopened to the public today (April 23).

 The facility will be open Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. It will also be open on Saturday, April 25 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., but will be closed on future Saturdays.

 “To support physical distancing between customers and city staff, there are additional safety measures in place at the facility, including an intercom system, an outdoor payment terminal and signs about physical distancing,” city staff released in a statement. “Please sort materials before bringing them to the facility, as sorting is not permitted on-site due to COVID-19 restrictions.”

If your load is not sorted, like if you have leaf and yard waste, recycling and garbage in one vehicle, it will be considered a mixed load. The rate for mixed loads is $228 per tonne, with a minimum rate of $22.80 for loads less than 100 kilograms.

Rates and payment methods are listed on the city’s website.
