The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) is permitting Dutton Dunwich to continue composting activities at the landfill site providing an application to amend the Environmental Compliance Approval (ECA) is submitted. Composting materials will be accepted at the landfill site during the application and approval process. This process will take 1-2 years to complete. We extend a sincere thank you to Ministry staff for their re-assessment and follow-up regarding this matter. Composting materials include yard waste such as grass clippings, plant trimmings, leave and pumpkins.
The Municipality will continue 2020 curbside yard waste collection on May 25th and Nov 9th . Please place all yard waste at the curb by 7:00 am as there is no set route for the collection of this material.
Backyard composter bins are now available to purchase at the Municipal office for $42 plus HST.
