Illegal Dumping

Illegal dumping is the dumping of waste anywhere except at an approved waste disposal site. This includes in the woods, along the side of the road, on private property, in someone else’s dumpster without permission, or at the gate of a waste management site. Illegal dumping is costly to taxpayers and damaging to the environment. Incidents of illegal dumping are investigated by the By-law Enforcement Officer and offenders could receive fines of $300 per incident.

Living in Bear Country

Carlow/Mayo Township is bear country and bears love garbage.  But with careful management of your waste, you can reduce the chance of attracting bears to your property:

  • Do not stockpile garbage.  Take it to the landfill frequently.
  • Keep meat scraps and cooked food waste in the freezer until you are ready to dispose of it to the landfill.
  • Store garbage in a bear-resistant container, secure shed or garage.
  • Never put meat, bones, fish or dairy products in your compost bin.

For more information on what you can do to reduce the chance of attracting bears to your home or cottage, visit the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) Bear Wise website, bears.mnr.gov.on.ca  To report a bear problem, contact the MNR Bear Reporting Line at 1-866-514-2327, TTY 705-945-7641.  In an immediate emergency please contact your local police or call 9-1-1.
