If you have been putting off a trip to the dump in Sudbury, get those garbage bags ready.

Residential tipping fees at all Greater Sudbury landfill and waste transfer sites will be waived from May 6-11.

“Greater Sudbury residents can deliver discarded household items to local landfill sites free of charge during this week,” the city said in a news release.

The landfill will be open that week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Monday to Friday, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

“Please sort your loads for proper disposal and recycling prior to arriving at the landfill site,” the release said.

“Examples of proper sorting categories include blue box recyclables, scrap metal and appliances, furniture, electronics, concrete, tires, leaf and yard trimmings, and regular household garbage. Prevent littering by covering trailers and truck beds when transporting waste.”

Fees for household waste will be waived if delivered in a private motor vehicle. Residents who choose to rent a vehicle or borrow a commercial pickup truck to deliver their household waste must complete a Rental Vehicle Approval Form or Commercial Pickup Truck Approval Form.

Applications must be submitted for approval at least one week prior to the beginning of the tipping fee holiday, by end of the day on April 29.

Online applications are available here.

Non-residents of Greater Sudbury are not permitted access to City landfill sites. Proof of address may be required.

“Be prepared for longer than usual wait times due to increased landfill traffic during the tipping fee holiday week,” the city said.
