Recycling has become the most effective way to reduce the amount of garbage going to our landfill sites. Council is committed to improving the waste diversion activities in Laurentian Hills to prolong the life of our landfill site. The more we can recycle, the better for the environment and our wallets.

North Renfrew Waste Disposal Site
The North Renfrew Waste Disposal Site is located on Baggs Road off of Plant Road in Chalk River. The Site is a joint effort from the Towns of Laurentian Hills and Deep River and is looked after by the North Renfrew Landfill Operations Board. The Board consists of two members of council each from Laurentian Hills and Deep River and one resident.
Baggs Road Landfill Hours:
Following the guidelines of the Ministry of the Environment, the Board is dedicated to diverting as much waste as possible from the site through various programs such as the tire recycling program, the re-use area, the household hazardous waste area, composting, scrap metal area and brush and wood chipping programs.
There is no tipping fee for carpeting at the Baggs Road Landfill site. The Landfill Board strongly recommends that you plan to cut and roll old carpeting as you remove it, as specified below and take it to the Baggs Road landfill site. Carpets waste 4% of our valuable landfill volume with a value of $20,000/year.
Broadloom carpeting and its underlay (rolled separately) that is dry, free of contamination and tightly rolled so that there is little or no 'doughnut hole' will be accepted with no tipping fee. The rolls are limited to 4 - 4.5 feet tall when standing on end.
All demolition Waste must be taken to the Town of Deep River's Miller's Road Waste Site.
