The landfills are closed and will be open starting January 5th. Waste collection remains unchanged and the 2-bag bylaw still applies.

SPRING CLEAN UP : The Nation Municipality’s Spring Clean up will be held from April 25th to April 29th, 2022.  ITEMS MADE OF METAL WILL NOT BE PICKED UP.  More details at the Spring Clean Up section.

NEW FEES : As of January 1st 2022, the costs of using The Nation landfills will be increased.  All charges will be calculated at a price of $ 0.65 per cubic foot, with a minimum fixed charge of $ 2.00. Only payments made by Interac will be accepted at The Nation landfills. If payment cannot be made on site, an invoice will be sent to the user and an additional administrative fee of $ 4.00 will be added to the bill.

HOLIDAYS: There is garbage and recycling pickup on all Statutory Holidays with the exception of Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, where recycling and garbage collection schedules will be delayed by one day for the remainder of the week, with Saturday making up for the missed day.

NOXIOUS WEEDS: In Ontario, 25 weeds are designated as noxious under the Weed Control Act. If you have questions or concerns about noxious weeds, contact The Nation’s Environment Department at 613-764-5444 Ext. 222


Mike’s Waste Disposal Inc. performs the waste and recycling collection service for The Nation Municipality and uses two trucks, one for garbage and one for recycling. To note that both collections are done on the same day, but there might be a delay between the two pick-ups.

RECYCLING BINS: Please note that The Nation Municipality no longer offers recycling bins to residents.  New provincial recycling regulations will be introduced in 2023.
