Waste Transfer Site
Niverville Council recognizes that there may be occasions when residents have additional household waste that they would like to personally remove. To meet this need a waste transfer site will be opened. Bristal Hauling, located approximately one kilometer north on Sixth Avenue North has agreed to provide the service.
Current operating hours and fees for the waste transfer site can be found HERE.
For renovation projects Bristal Hauling has 6 yard rental bins at a special rental rate for Niverville residents of $150 per unit based on a three day turnaround.
Depending on the demand for a waste transfer site, Bristal Hauling will be considering installing scales so as to be able to charge based on weight. Niverville Council will be monitoring demand for the service.
