Tippage fees will be collected at the time of dumping and are:

$3.00 per bag

$25.00 per ½ ton truck or small trailer


Brush – no exceptions

Domestic Garbage

Fish Guts


Due to demands from the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) and the Ministry of Environment (MOE) restrictions are as follows:

ABSOLUTELY NO: Wood of any kind, fibreglass insulation, shingles, plastics, tarps, styrofoam, glass, furniture, mattresses, tires, appliances, electronics, paints, batteries, or hazardous chemicals.

There is a $500.00 fine for anyone caught dumping these items at the Minaki site.  These items must be taken to the Kenora Waste Transfer Station for proper disposal.

Non-compliance will result in the rescinding of dumping privileges.

All fees go towards the costs of operating the site in accordance with MNR and MOE guidelines.  The Minaki Waste Management Board is a volunteer group working for the benefit of the community to keep the landfill site open.

We appreciate your co-operation in maintaining the Minaki dump site.
