Now that spring is here and as you start to clean up your home and property, we would like to remind everyone there is a charge for most types of waste that you bring out to the Landfill / Transfer Station.
It is important to remember that there is a charge whether you are a resident of the Town of Bonnyville or the Municipal District of Bonnyville; If you are an MD resident, the MD will pay the fees associated with bagged household waste to a maximum of 300kg per trip. MD customers will be responsible for the fee on any weight exceeding 300kgs and the fees for any other waste brought to the site.
Signs are posted at the site with what these fees are as they are subject to change.
