Waste Disposal

Our Ingredion Centre Walking Track is closed while the provincial stay-at-home order is in effect. Our Township Office is closed to the public, but staff are available to help you remotely during regular business hours. Visit our webpage for updates to township services during covid-19.

Pre-paid punch cards are the only form of payment at the Scott Rd Dump site. Punch cards can be purchased online at www.twpec.ca/shop or in person at Burchell’s Home Hardware, Cardinal.

Residents should be aware that any garbage placed curbside for pickup before 5am on the day of collection should be placed in a container suitable to keep water and animals out. Please help us keep our homes and neighbourhoods free of unwanted animals by removing these late night snacks.
