South Huron Landfill re-opens to provide essential services to businesses and residents


The Municipality is preparing to reopen the South Huron Landfill to support small businesses providing essential services and the urgent disposal needs of South Huron residents beginning on Thursday, April 9th.

In the past week, the Municipality has enhanced procedures at the landfill to provide additional safety and physical distancing measures for staff and customers. However, the resumption of landfill services is conditional on users working cooperatively with staff and practicing physical distancing by keeping at least 2m away from others while out in public.

“The Municipality is doing our part to support essential services,“ said Mayor George Finch. “We’re asking the public to continue to do your part: if you are unwell or in self-isolation, stay at home and do not make unnecessary trips out in public.”

The interim landfill hours of operation will be:

Mondays, 9:00AM – 5:00PM

Tuesdays, 9:00AM – 5:00PM

Thursdays, 9:00AM – 5:00PM

Fridays, 9:00AM – 5:00PM

*Please note that the landfill will be closed April 10th and 13th for statutory holidays.

Upon arrival, landfill customers will be asked to provide proof of South Huron residency (driver’s license) as the following landfill services are only available to residents of the municipality:

  • Residential waste (regular household garbage)
  • Yard Waste (leaves, tree branches, grass, sod)
  • Asphalt Roofing Shingles
  • Construction & Demolition material, including clean wood.
  • Stumps and large tree trunks
  • Concrete and bricks
  • Scrap metal
  • Tires (non-commercial only)
  • E-Waste

Following direction by the Province of Ontario mandating the closure of non-essential services, the Municipality of South Huron has put in place measures to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19 in our communities. Staff have been redeployed to continue providing essential services throughout the municipality. For a complete list municipal services affected by the COVID-19 coronavirus, visit
