The Township of Tudor and Cashel provides depot service for the collection of all waste, including garbage and recycling. Our waste management operations are governed by the Township of Tudor and Cashel Waste Management Bylaw and individual Certificates of Approval for each waste management site.

In an effort to encourage everyone to recycle, Bag Tags are now mandatory for all household waste.  Each property owner will receive 25 complimentary tags to start and then will be offered for sale for $1.00 each in sheets of 10.  Tags may be picked up at the waste site or at the municipal office.  Recycling remains free of charge.

Waste site attendants will provide you with an invoice for any fees such as bulky waste or bag tag purchases – if you do not pay this invoice within 30 days of receiving it from the waste site attendants it will be added to your tax roll account and interest will be added monthly at the rate of 1.25%.  Invoices can be paid at the municipal office via cash, cheque, debit machine or paid online through your tax account.

Waste Sites Policy's and Programs

As of March 1st 2011, all household garbage must be in a clear bag or open container, so that all waste is visible and easily identified by the Attendant. The purpose of this regulation is to help ensure that recyclable or hazardous waste materials do not end up in our landfills. If any recyclable materials or prohibited waste are found within the clear bags, the bags will be refused or the Attendant will ask you to remove and properly sort the waste.

The Township of Tudor and Cashel has a recycling program in effect.  Cardboard and paper fibres are to be broken down and bundled.  There is a container at the site strictly for these materials.  All other recyclable materials are co-mingled.  This means that all other recyclable materials can be placed in a clear plastic bag together.  It is important that efforts are made to compact recyclables, this effort made by everyone can help reduce the cost associated with running the recycling program.  It is also important to remember that the more we are able to divert from our waste sites the longer that we will be able to keep them open. See the bylaw below.

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 Bylaw Enforcement Officer, and offenders could receive fines of $300 per incident.

Living in Bear Country

Tudor and Cashel 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 take 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 705-945-7671. In an immediate emergency, call your local police or 9-1-1.
