Landfill – SWAMP Information
The regional landfill site (SWAMP) is aimed at providing an environmental way of dealing with the waste from the entire region. Where possible, all business and residential customers are encouraged to follow the 3R principal: reduce, reuse and recycle. Please use local composting facilities for composting of leaves and grass clippings. Take advantage of Household Hazardous Waste collection days when they are advertised. One of the latest additons to the recycling effort is the collection of E-waste. Electronic goods are now accepted at the recycling depots in Morden and Winkler.
