Special Waste Collection Days

The Township annually hosts a special waste collection for two days in September at the Dawn Landfill Site. Items that are accepted at the special waste collection days include appliances, car parts, E-waste, furniture, mattresses, metal/steel, tires and other items not normally placed at the curbside during regular waste collection. Please note that there is a tipping fee for the disposal of non-hazardous construction and demolition materials. Hazardous materials are not accepted at the Dawn Landfill Site however, the County of Lambton, in conjunction with Clean Harbors Canada Inc., hosts several HHW collections events each year. The events give Lambton County residents an opportunity to properly dispose of potentially dangerous waste from their homes and protect our environment at the same time. HHW Days take place at the Clean Harbors Canada Inc. site, 4090 Telfer Road in St. Clair Township the last Saturdays of March, April, May, June, September, and October.
