Waste and Recycling

Central Frontenac operates two (2) landfill sites and one (1) transfer station for residents, all three sites are home to our household recycling depots and site staff are available with safe and educated recycling procedures.  Landfill Sites are the final resting place for non- recyclable garbage, requiring regular cover of soil to prevent garbage from attracting wildlife or blowing around as litter and minimize odors.
