Waste Disposal Site & Recycling Depot

The Municipality of Tweed's Waste Disposal Site & Recycling Depot is located at 831 Marlbank Road.


The Municipality of Tweed is committed to providing a high level of service when it comes to your household waste, and in order to do so we must transition to clear bags. A transfer station for waste is too costly and is an undesirable option for ratepayers. We are committed to providing a landfill to residents right here in our Municipality for decades to come.  Our Municipality must ensure a sustainable landfill over the long term, and increased recycling efforts will aid in this.
