Disposal location closures

We make best efforts to keep the disposal locations open. However, we may not be able to accept hauled sewage due to poor weather conditions, operational difficulties or other issues at the receiving facility.

Staff will notify registered sewage haulers of closures as they happen as best as possible.

After hours disposals

The treatment plants may be able to accept disposals outside of regular disposal hours.

Disposal requests should be made as far in advance as possible with the operations manager or operator-in-charge for the facility. Requests for after-hours disposals for special events (multiple loads or unusual circumstances) must be done 48 hours in advance.

Haulers must obtain written permission from the operations manager for the disposal facility, such as an email response from the manager.

Emergency disposals

Haulers requiring after hours EMERGENCY disposals can contact the operator-in-charge for permission to discharge. In the event that they cannot be reached, call Niagara Region Dispatch 1-800-263-7215.

No person may discharge sewage or remain on-site after the hours of operation unless prior arrangements have been made.

All requirements of the Hauled Sewage Policy apply to emergency disposals.

On-site policies

Spills

Spills must be reported immediately to the on-site operator and to the Spills Action Centre if off the property. Haulers responsible for the spill will be required to clean up the spill. Additional fees may be charged should the hauler not adequately clean up the area to the Region's satisfaction.

Smoking

Smoking is not permitted at any Niagara Region facility.

Safety

Failure to follow the safety requirements below may result in sewage hauler permit suspension or revocation.

  • Haulers must follow directions of plant personnel and any posted safety rules
  • Haulers must obey all posted traffic control signs, such as stop signs, speed bumps and speed limits
  • Vehicles must not exceed 15 km/h while on Niagara Region property
  • No hauler may enter a vehicle tank or any confined or restricted space while on Regional property
  • The driver of the vehicle or another trained employee of the hauler must remain with the vehicle while disposal occurs
  • Haulers may only dispose of sewage at the designated haulage sewage location on site. If you can't find the designated location, contact someone on site to help you.
