Please refer to Schedule L - Solid Waste Fees and Charges for tipping fee information.

Effective August 1, 2018 the landfill tipping fees will be changing to cover the costs of some of the current waste diversion programs and landfill operations.

Compost is also available for purchase at the Landfill, whether you need a container full or a truck load, please refer to Summerland Compost Information (247 KB) pdf for further details on what our Compost contains and tips on its uses.

Did you know that empty plastic bags can be recycled at the Landfill?  Small appliances, styrofoam and household hazardous waste are accepted too.  There are many items that can be recycled at the Landfill Recycling Depot for free, as long as items are separated.  Please follow the link to find a full list of recyclable items that are accepted at the Landfill Recycling Depot.

The public is reminded that all loads being taken to the Landfill must be secured and covered, loads that are not will be charged double the regular tipping fee.  Please keep our roads free from debris.  Your assistance is appreciated!
