All waste generated from the agriculture sector i.e.: bale wrap/mesh, plastic film (silage bags, un-recyclable grain bags), hoses and seed bags etc. will be charged at the demolition rate. Pesticide/Herbicide containers are accepted at the site year round. Empty and triple rinsed containers are to be offloaded at Building # 1 (Hazardous Waste Storage) in there designated area. Any jugs arriving in boxes must be removed before off loading, you are then responsible for disposing of the boxes at the cardboard recycling facility (Building # 3). Disposal of large livestock (horse, pig, sheep), are required to pay a disposal fee per animal. The animals must be deceased, euthanizing on site is not allowed. The minimum equipment time charge for immediate burial will be applied for large animals (horse, pig). The DDSWMA no longer accepts dead cattle due to additional standards implemented by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
