Boats are Accepted at the Landfill

Fee: $95.00 per tonne will be charged

Procedure for bringing in boats to the Landfill:

1. Make sure that the boat is empty of fuel. If the customer cannot assure the Landfill Attendant with physical evidence that the boat has no fuel in it then we will not accept it and the boat owner will have to bring it back when they can prove it is empty of fuel.

2. The Landfill Attendant will inspect and verify that the boat is empty of fuel in one of three ways:

Option 1: have a hole pre-drilled in the bottom of the existing fuel tank. This will demonstrate that the tank is empty.
Option 2: remove tank completely from the boat – if possible. Some boats have this option and other don’t.
Option 3: Attendant will dip the tank with a stick to demonstrate that the tank is empty.

boat-wrapThis procedure is in place to ensure the personal safety of the Landfill attendants and to avoid any environmental contamination from fuel that would have been left in these tanks.

Boat wrap is accepted at all landfills. It must meet the following criteria in order to be accepted:

  • Clean
  • Rolled (uses less space when rolled or compressed)
  • Tied together
