Special Waste

Special waste is material that is hazardous, or requires special handling and/or disposal to ensure there is no risk to human health or the environment. This can include hospital waste, old chemicals, and asbestos.

Please contact the Landfill Staff, or the WAL office to discuss your special waste prior to bringing it to the landfill. There is a special waste disposal area at the site, and there may be particular packaging instructions, depending what the waste is. Charges vary, but as an estimate, the usual rate for special waste disposal is $875 per tonne.
