GFL LAND FILL REOPENS WITH CONDITIONS

GFL LAND FILL REOPENS WITH CONDITIONS:

GFL has taken everything into account and has decided to re-open the facility to residential drop-off customers on Monday, May 4th.  A few conditions are listed below:

  • No cash being accepted – tap credit or debit only;
  • For larger loads that need to be unloaded at the tipping face, residents must bring their own PPE (hard hats, vests and steel toes).  We will not be lending PPE to any customers.
    • Note that the majority of residents do not need to access the tipping face.  Loads are usually small enough to be unloaded at the residential bin area (no PPE needed);
  • GFL requests that residents come to site with a face mask or cover to protect our scale house attendants.
