Landfills: Frequently Asked Questions

What is DLC Waste?
Demolition, Land Clearing and Construction Waste, or “DLC Waste” consists of largely inert solid waste, resulting from construction, remodelling, and demolition projects. Examples of specific materials include - but are not limited to - wood, concrete, scrap metal, asphalt shingles, gypsum, tile, or porcelain fixtures.

How Can I Lower My Disposal Fees?
Separating and sorting all divertable or recyclable DLC material will result in lower disposal fees, and for most loads, result in significant savings. See reverse for an example.

Why are the DLC fees higher than regular waste?
It provides an incentive to reduce and recycle while saving landfill space. Diverting material from the landfill saves space for material that truly belongs there and allows us to keep landfills open for as long as possible. It moves the cost of running solid waste disposal away from the taxpayer and onto users. Demolition/construction waste is not generated by everyone, so the cost of this service should be subsidized by the users and not taxpayers. The new fee structure is more aligned with surrounding Regional Districts and municipalities.
