Halton Waste Management Site

Halton Waste Management Site (HWMS) Sunday Openings Pilot Program ended on July 10, 2016. The results of this pilot program will measure resident interest and assess the long-term feasibility of having HWMS open on Sundays. A report on the HWMS Sunday Openings Pilot Program will be presented to Halton Regional Council this fall to help determine future direction.
