A Message from Municipal Services Regarding the Transfer Station

Public Works logo
We recently sustained significant damage to our Transfer Station building due to a fire. At this facility, fires may occur for a variety of reasons such as improper disposal of hazardous materials.  These materials include, among other things, lithium-ion batteries, chemicals, fuels, small propane cylinders, and fertilizers. We realize that many people are currently home given the COVID-19 crisis and are perhaps taking advantage of that time to clean out sheds, garages, basements, etc. Please use extreme caution when handling hazardous items and properly store them until our next Household Hazardous Waste Day in October. Below is a list of items that are usually collected on that day:
 
  • Oil Paints
  • Stains, Thinners & Strippers
  • Solvents & Varnishes
  • Adhesives, Glues, Resins
  • Waste Fuels (Kerosene, Gasoline)
  • Engine Degreaser, Brake Fluid
  • Transmission Fluid
  • Poisons, Insecticides, Weed Killers
