Waste Management

The Municipality of Calvin takes active measures to prolong the life of the Municipal Landfill Site. Although the landfill site’s useful life is limited, studies show it is possible to increase the life expectancy.

The Municipality works in partnership with Waste Diversion OntarioOntario Electronic Stewardship and Ontario Tire Stewardship to recycle scrap metal, electronics and tires.

We have an area for reusable items called “Free to a Good Home” also known as “The Calvin Mall”.
