Temporary Waste Collection Changes due to COVID-19

Niagara Region is making some temporary changes to waste collection, as a result of COVID-19 and to assist in stopping the spread of infection.

Curbside collection

Bag garbage material before placing at the curb

Garbage shouldn't be loose in garbage containers and should be bagged. Several smaller kitchen sized garbage bags may be used and placed inside a garbage container for placement at the curb.


The preferred methods of payment at all of our landfills are debit and credit, using the tap option.

There is a limit on the number of people allowed on the drop-off pad at one time to ensure we comply with physical distancing, so there may be delays at the site.

If your visit to the drop-off depot can wait, we recommend postponing until a later date.

To ensure the safety of others, if you are currently practising self-isolation or have any flu-like symptoms, you are not permitted to enter any landfill site.
