With the passing of By-law No. 2009-35, (available at the bottom of this page)effective December 1st, 2009, Chisholm residents now have a bag limiting system.
 
New "Pass Cards" for 2015-16 are ready to be picked up at the Landfill Site on your next visit if you haven't picked it up already. We also ask that you leave your old card with the Attendant. 

This year, the bag limit has been changed to 78 bags per year for residents; vacant property owners have a limit of 16 bags while commercial and industrial owners have a limit of 195 bags. Should people exceed this limit, they will have to pay for every extra bag.   Residents will also be allowed one free half-ton truck or trailer load of waste each year, but  this year, the timeframe to bring these loads has been changed.  If you bring this load during the month  of June , there will be no cost, but any other time of the year you will be charged the applicable tipping fee.
 
 
If you have your garbage picked up by the private contractor, he has already been given your Pass Card and  will look after it for you. He will also provide the landfill attendant with a list of his customers’ names so they can take advantage of the free load per year.  Private garbage pick-up is available by contacting Calvin Smith at (705) 707-9686.
 
 
VERY IMPORTANT!  As of May 1, 2013 no household garbage is accepted at the landfill site unless it is placed in  clear or tinted bags, making the contents visible to the landfill staff.  This will ensure that no recyclable materials and/or hazardous waste are disposed of in our landfill, therefore extending the life of our existing site.
 
These large clear/tinted bags can be purchased at most grocery stores in the area, as well as bigger department stores like Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Canadian Tire, etc. and the smaller bags are also available at most locations or will be in the very near future.
 
If you prefer to use grocery bags or regular kitchen catchers, these will have to be emptied into the large clear bags.  The only exception will be the "privacy bag".
 
To address transparency concerns regarding personal items related to personal/hygiene waste, one "privacy bag", not larger than 20" x 22" will be acceptable per large clear bag.
 
For general information about the landfill site,you can refer to the By-law 2008-21 also at the bottom of this page. 
 
Refer to the Recycling page for information about what materials are recyclable and which materials should be brought to the Household Hazardous Waste Depot.
 
Please remember, it is very important to bring your Landfill Pass Card with you everytime you go to the landfill site!
