The Township of Augusta does not have curbside waste/recycling pick up.
Residents are responsible for getting their own waste/recycling to either of our two waste transfer sites where they can dispose of most items FREE of charge.
As per By-Law 3363-2018 all household waste must be in clear bags and under 40 lb.
Proof of residency will be required at both transfer sites. These sites are ONLY for those who live or own property in Augusta Township.
Recycling and composting reduces the waste that is collected and transported at our Transfer Stations. The more we recycle and compost the higher the waste diversion rate. If we can divert more waste from the transfer station, the township will receive additional funding from Stewardship Ontario to assist in the operation and promotion of recycling freeing up tax payer dollars for other projects.

HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE DAYS

On these days, residents can drop off FREE OF CHARGE items such as:
Corrosive: batteries, drain cleaners, oven cleaners
Toxic: pesticides, rat poison, pharmaceuticals, cleaning fluids
Reactive: pool chemicals, ammonia, bleach, aerosols

ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY
As per the Township’s Harassment By-Law 3259-2016, Augusta is committed to a Safe Working Environment for all employees, including those at our Waste Management sites.
Harassment includes, but is not limited to:
• physically threatening behavior such as shaking a fist at someone, finger pointing, destroying property, throwing objects
• verbal or written threats to physically attack a worker
• leaving threatening notes or sending threatening emails
• wielding a weapon
• physically aggressive behaviour including hitting, shoving, standing excessively close to someone in an aggressive manner, pushing, kicking, throwing an object at someone, physically restraining someone or any other form of physical or sexual assault
Here are a few highlights of By-Law 3582-2022 (the “Littering By-Law”):
The By-Law prohibits the throwing, placing or depositing of debris on private or municipal property within the Township.
Debris includes “all waste, garbage, litter, rubbish, material, refuse, discarded paper or wrappers, cigarette butts and any other discarded or abandoned commodities of any kind whatsoever and without limiting the generality of the foregoing includes a motor vehicle that appears by reason of its age, appearance, mechanical condition or lack of licence plates to be inoperative, inoperative mechanical equipment, automotive and mechanical parts, disused furniture, old clothing, garden or yard refuse, earth or rock fill, old or decayed lumber, material from construction or demolition projects and other vehicles, machinery equipment, materials or structures apparently disused in their existing location.”
If caught leaving debris on Township roads (which includes ditches) the fine will be $200.00.
The By-Law also states that “No person shall place any debris in a receptacle which is not owned by the
Township except with the consent of the Owner of such receptacle.” In other words, depositing garbage into bins owned, for example, by a local business/company without their permission is also illegal and those caught doing so can be fined $200.00.
