Fee changes for Regional disposal sites and container prices

​​On March 24, 2022, Niagara Regional Council approved a revised fee structure that better reflects the true cost of the Region’s waste management services. The following changes to the fee rates will take effect April 1, 2022.
Landfill tipping fees will be changing in the following areas:
  • Garbage, construction and demolition material
    • For waste up to 50 kg, the fee is changing from $5 minimum fee to $7
    • The fee for 50 kg and above is changing from $117/tonne to $120/tonne
  • Residential and commercial concrete and asphalt
    • Changing from $10/tonne to $25/tonne
  • Commercial clean soil
    • Changing from $20/load to $30/load
  • Commercial contaminated soil
    • Changing from $30/tonne to $35/tonne
Many items are received at no charge at Regional landfills/public drop off depots. Residents are encouraged to separate all recyclable material to reduce waste being landfilled, and reduce fee payment.
Container prices will be changing as outlined below:
  • Blue/Grey boxes changing from $6 to $7
  • Blue/Grey Carts changing from $69 to $87
  • 32 Gallon Green Carts changing from $50 to $55
  • 64 Gallon Green Carts changing from $69 to $118
  • Backyard Composter changing from $21 to $41
These new fees do not cover the full cost of the bins or landfill operations, but do help to off-set costs to the general taxpayer.
For more information on these changes, or any other waste management services, call Niagara Region’s Waste Info-Line at 905-356-4141 or 1-800-594-5542, Monday through Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. (excluding holidays) or visit the Waste Management website.
