SEPARATION OF ROOFING WASTES

The tipping fee for asphalt shingles and other construction and demolition debris at the Newell Regional Landfill is no charge for less than 1,000kg and $25/tonne for loads over 1,000kg (fee applied to entire load). It is the responsibility of the generator to ensure that any materials brought to the landfill for disposal are acceptable and are separated as required. In the case of asphalt shingles this means that all loose wastes must be bagged separately for alternate disposal. Pallets, metal and cardboard must be also be separated and are directed to other locations.

RURAL & RESIDENTIAL WASTE MANAGEMENT & RECYCLING

The Newell Regional Landfill and transfer stations operate under a Province of Alberta Approval. This and other Provincial Legislation specify what wastes and materials can be accepted at the Newell collection and disposal facilities. In addition improper sorting and dumping of some wastes poses a serious health and safety risk to other residents, to Newell Waste Management Staff and to the environment.
