Too much garbage and recycling?
The City of Kawartha Lakes Solid Waste By-Law 2007- 024 requires that loads of waste brought to landfill sites contain no more than 20% divertible materials. Failure to comply will result in a written warning for the first offence; further non-compliance will result in significantly increased tipping fees.
If your business is producing more than the weekly set out limit, private waste haulers are available to handle the larger quantities.
A new landfill load inspection program has been implemented to encourage your participation in diversion programs.
