New landfill entrance opens June 2

The new gates to the landfill swing open on Monday. The existing Glenmore Road entrance to the landfill will be closed to customers and the new entrance off John Hindle Drive will be open for business.

The new entrance means better service for landfill customers. Improvements include a new recycling area before the main gates, improved weigh scales for measuring loads, and paved areas for refuse disposal making load drop-off easier and cleaner for residents visiting the site.

The new entrance and traffic signal will also take some of the traffic congestion off Glenmore Drive and will allow a safer left turn for those entering and leaving the landfill.
