NEW LANDFILL OPERATIONS
Council has passed a by-law to implement changes to the operations of the Conmee Landfill site. Starting June 29, 2016 residents will be required to show an ID card with your civic address in order to enter the landfill site. This ID will be provided by the Township. You will also be required to show another piece of photo ID with your civic address (Emergency Number). Your ID will be recorded at each visit.
Although only one card will be issued per civic address, you may record up to four (4) persons who may take your garbage and recycling into the landfill on your behalf. The Landfill Attendant will have a list of all authorized users. This will include persons such as children who may take th ewaste to the landfill for their parents but do not have ID with a civic address in the Township of Conmee. It is up to the resident to ensure that the list is kept up-to-date with the Muniicpal Office.
If you have your garbage and recycling picked up by another person or company for a fee, you must record that person or company as one of your four authorized users. If you are a person or company who picks up other people's garbage for a fee you must register with the Ministry of the Environment for a licence and provide a copy of that licence, as well as a list of your clients to the Municipal Office.
The first ID card is free. Replacement cards will be $25.00.
If you are unable to come to the Municipal Office in person you may complete the Authorization Form below to have another person pick up the card for you.
Special limited access will be allowed for contractors to bring in construction waste, vacant property owners to clean up the property and in the case of illness or death of a property owner.
Please contact the Municipal Office at 475-5229 for information on Landfill passes. The Conmee Landfill may be used by residents only. Non-resident property owners may apply for a time limited landfill pass to clean up existing garbage from a Conmee property, but in no case may waste from other Townships be placed in the Conmee Landfill. If you are a non-resident property owner, please contact the Clerk at 475-5229 for more information on temporary landfill passes.
