The Petrolia Landfill is owned by Waste Management and is located at 4052 Oil Heritage Road.  The phone number for the landfill site is 519-882-3044.

The landfill site is open Monday-Friday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Saturday from 8:00 am to 11:00 am.

Enniskillen residents must be prepared to identify themselves and provide their landfill card (new resident card required as of Oct 2012) to place wastes in the dumpsters.  The municipality has hired a part time landfill monitor to check that “only residents of the municipality” are using the dumpsters for household waste and recyclables at the landfill site.

The dumpsters at the landfill site are only for the following:

Acceptable Wastes include: household wastes, sofas, chairs, dressers, mattresses, tables, lamps, pictures, shelving, patio and lawn furniture, children’s toys, gardening tools, as well as toilets or sinks.

Unacceptable Wastes include: windows, building materials, sheds, shingles, flooring, drywall, trim, bathtubs, heating and cooling systems, swimming pool liners, counter tops and yard wastes.

  • household wastes (in garbage bags) will be accepted in the garbage dumpsters.
  • recycled materials should be separated to their appropriate dumpster.  Please refer to the following list of items that may be recycled.
  • cardboard should be flattened to permit increased volumes of material into the recycling bin.

All other wastes will be subject to the current tippage fees charged by Waste Management.
