Town of Tillsonburg Transfer Station will be closed during declared Provincial Emergency

Posted on Wednesday January 13, 2021

The Town of Tillsonburg is announcing today that the Transfer Station (50 Newell Road) will be closed, effective January 14, 2021, for the duration of the provincial emergency. 

“The Premier has instructed Ontarians to stay at home whenever possible and only leave home for essential errands like picking up groceries, or prescriptions,” says Mayor Stephen Molnar. “Closing the Transfer Station at this time respects that direction and will help protect our community from the continued spread of COVID-19.” 

Both the yard waste area and large item depot will remain closed for a minimum of 28 days. 

“The Transfer Station is a value-added service in Tillsonburg,” explains Director of Operations Carlos Reyes. “We are continuing to monitor the situation and will reopen the facility when advised by the Province that it is safe to do so. However, at this time, we are asking Tillsonburg residents to be patient and respect the stay-at-home order.” 

The Transfer Station was temporarily closed in the spring of 2020 during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Starting January 14, the landfill at the Waste Management Facility in Salford will be temporarily closed to the public (residential customers) for 28 days, or longer if the provincial emergency order is extended. The facility will remain open Monday to Friday only to serve essential businesses and services.
