WASTE DISPOSAL SITE
The Township of Chamberlain Disposal site is located at #535399 Wawbewawa Road and is open to residents and ratepayers only on Thursdays from 1 to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is an attendant on duty at these times to make sure that residents and ratepayers are properly using the recycling facility and that garbage is sorted. Please note that for the holiday season the dump will be closed December the 25th, 2016 and January the 1st, 2017, but WILL be open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on December the 29th, 2016 and January the 5th, 2017!!
All household garbage must be bagged. Each household and recreational property will receive a disposal site pass at the disposal site. The pass is to be showed to the site attendant every trip to the disposal site. The $30.00 cost of the pass is now included in the final tax bill. All residential waste must be generated in the Township of Chamberlain.
No recyclable material is to be dumped in the pit. No non-recyclables are to be dumped in the recycle bins.
The Township of Chamberlain encourages all residents and ratepayers to use the recycle bins located at the disposal site. While the cost of recycling can be expensive it does extend the life of the disposal site. The cost of recycling far outweighs the costs involved in the closing of an existing site, the opening of a new site, or the expansion of a disposal site. However, recycling costs will continue to increase if garbage is found in the recycle bins. Please help to reduce the amount of garbage found in our recycling by not placing the following prohibited materials in the blue recycling bins:
- Telephones (please place in OES container by the attendant shack);
- Large plastics: tarps, pool covers/liners, toys, etc.;
- Clothing, shoes, other fabric materials;
- Paint rollers & brushes;
- Christmas lights/extension cords;
- PVC pipes & fittings;
- Garbage & garbage bags: food scraps/diapers/kitty litter;

- Propane cylinders;
- Ink & toner cartridges (please recycle at stores such as Garlins and Staples);
- Yard waste: grass clippings, leaves, sticks, branches (belong in wood-burning pile);
- Electronics (belong in storage container by shack);
Shredded paper packaged in a clear plastic bag is acceptable, however any items received at the processing facility in garbage bags are considered non-recyclable, as these bags are not opened and the contents are not sorted. Recyclables must not be placed in any type of bag. When this happens there is an added expense for the township which in turn trickles down to the ratepayer.
