Waste Management

The Township of Carlow/Mayo provides depot service for the collection of all waste, including garbage and recycling. Both waste sites are accepting electronic waste and the Mayo waste site has a Re-Use Centre for items that are too good for the landfill and is also accepting household batteries. There are three days scheduled each year to accept hazardous waste for no charge at the Township of Faraday public works yard located at 29860A-B Hwy 28 South.  Your municipality is facing large cost increases to operate and prolong the life of your waste sites.  You can help reduce costs and prolong the life by increasing the amount of material you recycle.  Our waste management operations are governed by Certficiate of Approval issued by the Ministry of Environment for each waste management site.

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,  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.
