01Important Notes

SNOW STORM – January 17th, 2022 – Today’s garbage and recycling collection is postponed to Monday, January 24, 2022. There will therefore be the equivalent of two collections. The schedule for the rest of the week remains unchanged.

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.

COVID-19: The Nation landfills are open but residents must follow health guidelines.

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.

03Hazardous Waste

Household hazardous waste is not collected at the curb. Residents of The Nation Municipality can bring their household hazardous waste to one of our Municipal Hazardous and Special Waste Depots where items will be recycled, or disposed of safely. Strict health guidelines must be followed.

Note: All residents using the depot must provide proper identification as a Nation resident/property owner. We only accept waste generated from residential sources. Residents from other municipalities will not be accepted.

Cost: There is no charge.
