There is no per bag rate for disposal at the landfill, however; residents can place up to two additional bags of garbage out per week if the bags are tagged with Tag-a-Bag stickers. Locations to purchase Tag-a-bag stickers can be found at regionaldistrict.com

To help keep our roads safe and clean, residents are reminded to Tie it, Strap it, Tarp it and ensure that loads are covered and secured for the trip to the landfill. The fine for an uncovered load is up to $150.

Residents should expect a scheduling change over the holiday season. With Dec. 25 and Jan. 1 being Tuesdays, waste collection will be shifted by one day. Regular Tuesday pick-ups will be done on Wednesday, regular Wednesday pick-ups will be done on Thursday, etc.
