Transfer Station System

Lanark Highlands operates a network of transfer stations and landfills for its residents. Landfills are the final resting place for non-recyclable garbage; they require a frequent cover of soil to prevent garbage from attracting wildlife or blowing around as litter. Since cover material fills valuable space, the Township operates one landfill at a time in order to preserve capacity. The McDonalds Corners Waste Site is currently the Township’s active landfill site.

Both the McDonalds Corners Waste Site and Middleville Waste Site accept Construction & Demolition waste and large household items.

All other Waste Sites now operate as Transfer Stations and only accept Bagged Household Waste and Recyclables (Blue Box materials, Brush, Leaves, Tires, E-Waste and Scrap Metal), which are shipped off-site for final disposal.

If you have any questions about waste disposal, please contact the Lanark Highlands Township Office at 613-259-2398 ext. 242.

LARGE LOADS MUST BE SORTED!
Loads of construction & demolition waste MUST be sorted prior to delivery to the landfill. Scrap metal must be separated for deposit into designated areas at the waste site. Load separation increases the Municipality's ability to divert materials from the landfill and recycling increases revenues to pay for waste management. Load separation extends the life of our landfills and reduces your tipping fees.
