Tips from a Cottager

I found that the Facebook page for Chippewas of Saugeen First Nation was really helpful and responsive to my inquiries on Facebook messenger.

We had shingles to be disposed of. They can’t be dumped at the main landfill site. The guy at the landfill said that there is a special dumpsite for construction waste (called the Stump Dump). We had to go to the Works Department building on French Bay Road (paved section, beside the Library) and pay them, and then we could dump at the stump dump. The lady there was super helpful and she even took a few minutes and drove out to show us where the spot was on Pashwood Road. She asked to see our landfill ID card. Cost was $80.

All good, but definitely you need to find these things out, and follow the rules because the municipal dumps are NOT willing to take construction waste from leased land cottagers. (We tried two different ones – Sauble Beach and Southampton).

Feel free to share this under my name on the SCOI page. Happy to be a member!
