Closed: July 1 - Canada Day
Please note: Construction at Trail Road Waste Facility from April to August 2019
The City of Ottawa Trail Road Waste Facility Scale House will be under construction between April 1, 2019 and August 31, 2019. Due to aging infrastructure, the Scale House at the Trail Waste Facility will be demolished and a new building will be constructed in its place. A temporary scale with an alternative entrance to the landfill site will be set up. Customers are to enter the site from Cambrian Road. Signage will be posted on site to indicate the temporary entrance and location of the temporary Scale House. Customers should expect delays at the landfill site during this time.
Please note: During construction the Trail Road Waste Facility will not be accepting cash or personal cheques as a method of payment.
Ottawa residents and businesses can dispose of waste material at this facility. The Trail Road Waste Facility only accepts non-hazardous waste generated within the geographic boundaries of the City of Ottawa.
- Household hazardous waste is NOT accepted
- Liquid waste is NOT accepted
An environmental assessment to expand the Trail Road Waste Facility was approved in June of 2005. The expansion will provide an additional 10 to 40 years past 2008, depending on how much future waste can be successfully diverted from the landfill. Documents on the Trail Waste Facility Landfill Optimization/Expansion Project are available to the public at the Ottawa Public Library.
