The garbage levies are based on the total cost of the landfill site, recycling collection, waste collection and future closure of the site, therefore all taxpayers are levied a garbage rate on their property to incorporate the total costs.

The 2023 rates are as follows:

Residential $220.00 per year (full service)
Cottage $165.00 per year (May to October service)
Landfill $50.00 per year (no services, but have access to the landfill site throughout the year)
Commercial $410.00 per year x no. of units of collection (full service)

All garbage and Blue boxes must be placed at the curb by 7:30 a.m. the day of collection. McNab/Braeside Township policy allows a maximum of two regular sized green garbage bags. Bag size is 26"x 32 ½" or an equivalent container of 67 litres each week. Please check the size of your bags or containers. A yellow tag must be attached to each extra regular sized bag and placed at the curb for pickup. Tags can be purchased at the Township Office, White Lake General Store and Antrim Truck Stop.

Helpful Hints to Prevent Nuisance Bears and Birds:

  • Put garbage and recycle containers out for pickup on the morning of collection day.
  • Rinse containers before disposal or recycling.
  • Wash garbage cans and recycling containers frequently.
  • Place garbage bags in containers with lids at the curb.
  • Do not put meat, fish or other sweet foods in backyard composter. Keep items in your freezer until collection day.

The Township provides one free voucher by household each year for household garbage. The voucher is mailed in March with the Interim Tax Bill for residents who are levied a residential/cottage garbage levy on their tax bill. The voucher can be used throughout the year and expires at the end of December each year.

The landfill attendants accept cash, debit and cheque. for tippage fees. Residents and general contractors working for residents must show proof of residency before depositing garbage. View Fee List.

The landfill site will accept contaminated soil after the following conditions are met:

  • Proof that the soil is from within the boundaries of the Township.
  • Copy of the Lab test showing all data, which is verified by the Township's consultants that it meets the conditions of the Township Certificate of Approval for the Landfill Site.
  • Estimate of the total amount of soil in cubic yards to be deposited at the landfill site in writing by mail or fax to the Waste Co-ordinator.
  • Deposit of 50% of the total tippage fee is required and must be received by the main office before deliver of soil begins. (Calculated at number of cubic yards times price per cubic yards).
  • Advance notice of 3 working days to the office before the soil is delivered to the site. If a contractor wants to deliver soil other than the scheduled working days an extra charge will be applied.
