Mattresses

The County and City of Peterborough along with the Townships, are always investigating and taking advantage of new recycling programs to divert Waste from the Bensfort Road Landfill Site, in an effort to prolong its life.  As such, Mattresses and Box Springs are now  'Recyclable' products and are only accepted at the Bensfort Road Landfill Site. Residents are requested to bring the Mattresses as dry and clean as possible to assist with the recycling program. An $11 "tipping" fee (per item) will apply. 

Under the recycling program, the Township is no longer able to accept these items at either Transfer Station. However, as a convenience to our North Kawartha residents, Mattresses and Box Springs are accepted at the Anstruther Transfer Station, once a year, on Environmental Day.

Household Furniture

Household furniture such as couches, padded chairs, etc., are only accepted at the Bensfort Road Landfill Site.  However, as was noted above regarding mattresses, as a convenience to our North Kawartha residents, we accept these items at the Anstruther Transfer Station, once a year, on Environmental Day. Additionally, please note that items such as coffee tables, and other furniture if made entirely of wood qualify as residential C&D (Construction and Demolition) material, and can be accepted at the Anstruther Transfer Station from Victoria Day to Thanksgiving Day. Tipping fees apply.

Please see our Construction & Demolition, and Environmental Day pages for additional information.
