The Altona/Municipality of Rhineland Landfill tipping fees have increased as of May 1st, 2016. The Landfill will move to a weight-based tipping fee schedule. (Town of Altona Bylaw No. 1747/2016 Schedule "B”). The rates to be applied are as follows: 

General Garbage (per metric tonne): $42.75

Minimum Rate (up to 200 kg): $9.00

Clean Wood/Clean Fill (per metric tonne): $24.50

Garbage from outside RM borders (per metric tonne): $64.00

We ask that all incoming and exiting landfill traffic pay attention to the lights and signage posted at the weigh-scale. Please reduce speed and come to a full stop on the scale platform. A staff member will be in the scale office – all drivers must report to the office for load identification and instructions (incoming loads) as well as payment (exiting vehicles). The Landfill office is now equipped with a credit/debit machine for ease of payment.

For more information on rates and the effect of weight based fees, please contact Clint Derksen at (204) 324-6439 or email: clint.derksen@altona.ca

A used oil recycling depot is also located at the Town of Altona /Municipality of Rhineland Waste Disposal site. Bring used oil, oil filters or containers you have to this depot for recycling. The landfill also accepts tires at no charge.
