Landfill

The Landfill is located 6.5 km from Kitimat, on the west side of Highway 37.

Changes are coming to the Kitimat Municipal Landfill!  To improve operations we are making the following changes to the Iandfill;

  • Landfill signs. The District will be putting up new signs around the Landfill to provide better direction, organization and safety at the Landfill.
  • Sort your waste. For the safety of our landfill operators and to save landfill airspace, the following items should separated and placed in their designated areas, outside of the landfill’s active face:

    • Residential vehicle tires (rimless)
    • Scrap metal and large household appliances, place in “scrap metal pile”
    • Clean wood waste, place in “burn pile”
    • Yard waste and clean chipped wood, place in “compost windrow”
    • Empty compressed gas cylinders, place in designated area between “burn pile and compost windrows”
    • Lead-Acid batteries, place in designated area between “burn pile and compost windrows”
    • Corrugated cardboard is prohibited from the Landfill Site (bylaw 7.2.8.1). Please take all corrugated cardboard to KUTE recycling depot or place it at the curb on your next curbside collection day.
  • Construction of a new Landfill Entrance with a Scalehouse.  Coming 2022, the new scalehouse will help track incoming waste.

We ask for your patience and understanding, as this is a transitional period for both the public and Landfill Operating Staff.
