The Glenmore Landfill is open seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. and offers a variety of disposal options on site including recycling, organic materials, household and commercial waste. The Landfill also sells OgoGrow and GlenGrow.
Glenmore Landfill Open House - Tuesday, February 21 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The public is welcome to attend for an in-depth look at future plans for the facility, including a proposed revision to the current fill plan which would extend the life of the landfill up to 25 years. Everyone is welcome to attend and provide feedback. An online feedback form will be made available for those who are unable to attend the open house from Feb. 21 to Mar. 3.
All cardboard, paper, household container plastic, tin food cans and glass bottles and jars may be recycled. Recycling drop-off locations also exist for old propane bottles, lead acid batteries, clothing and small household appliances in working condition.
Scrap passenger vehicle tires and large metal appliances are stockpiled on site for subsequent processing and removal for recycling. (All ozone depleting substances such as Freon are collected from refrigerators and air conditioners prior to processing to eliminate any negative environmental impact.)
Organic yard waste, such as leaves, grass clippings, shrub trimmings and tree branches as well as clean, untreated lumber is collected separately and ground up on site to produce chips that can then be composted or used to provide all-weather access to various parts of the landfill. Most yard waste is ground up to produce GlenGrow, a popular soil amendment suitable for landscaping projects and gardening. GlenGrow is available for sale on site for $31.43 per yard (loaded up to 4 p.m.) or $4.19 per bag (bags are provided), plus applicable taxes.
Concrete and asphalt delivered to the site is crushed and used for road base material at the landfill.
Gypsum board (drywall) is a product that creates poisonous gasses when buried with household garbage. Hence, the Glenmore Landfill segregates this product and ships it off site for recycling and alternate uses.
Please be sure to cover and secure your load with a tarp in accordance with local bylaws and to keep our roads safe and clean. Residents that neglect to cover their landfill loads, risk causing debris to fall and create a safety hazard to vehicles driving behind, as well as pedestrians and cyclists who share the road.
The fine for an uncovered or unsecured load is up to $150.
