As of February 23, 2016, there are new reporting requirements under an amended Environmental Certificate of Approval.  This means that the Landfill Attendant will be asking you how many household garbage bags you will be disposing of upon arrival.

The Township of Macdonald, Meredith and Aberdeen Additional's landfill is situated at 503 Watson Road.  There is a 'Share Shed' available here.  If you have junk in your eyes but not in others, it can be placed in here.  Clothing is not accepted though.  There are used clothing containers in the Heritage Home Hardware Parking area.  

There is only one recycling area in our township.  It is situated at the landfill in the back half of the share shed, under the roof and is open during landfill hours as indicated below. 

Please break up your cardboard and recycled items must not be in bags.

There is a scrap metal bin available at the landfill site to take all metals.  Check with the attendant for further instruction.

There is an electronics bin for computers, tv's, stereos etc.  Coffee makers and microwave do not go in this bin.  Please check with the attendant so, they can dispose of the electronics for you.

Tires are accepted without the rims on.  Check with the attendant as to where to put them.

We do have a burn barrel availabe for clean wood and brush.
