Waste Management and Recycling


Managing landfills to deal with household and commercial waste is a significant cost to any municipality.

We can all do our part to reduce waste and keep items out of our landfills:

  • Refuse what you do not need.
  • Reduce what you do need.
  • Reuse what you consume.
  • Recycle what you cannot Refuse, Reduce, or Reuse.
  • Rot (compost) the rest!

Every bit we each do helps to make Brockton a more sustainable community.

Brockton's Environmental Advisory Committee has led the way in setting up community recycling and waste diversion programs. Find out what you can recycle to save space in our landfills.

In this section you can find out more about our Waste Management and Recycling Programs:

Long-Term Waste Management Plan

Brant and Greenock Landfills

In 2014 a long-term Waste Management Plan for the former Townships of Brant and Greenock was finalized. 

The purpose of the Waste Management Plan is to provide a holistic approach to the Municipality's waste management program for short-term and long-term waste management planning. The main purpose of the Waste Management Plan is to focus on maximizing the site life of the Brant and Greenock Landfills through waste diversion and improving landfill operations.

As of 2014 the Brant and Greenock Wards had an estimated 34 to 43 years of service life for waste disposal based on remaining landfill capacity and the projections for future waste generation. 

Walkerton Hanover Landfill

In 2005 a Waste Management Evaluation Study was completed for the Walkerton Hanover Landfill site. This site is operated jointly by the Municipality of Brockton (for use by Walkerton residents) and by the Town of Hanover.

This study identifies the fact that in 2004 the landfill was projected to reach capcaity by 2010. A 20 year period was used for the study which provides an overview of the landfill site, operations, waste reduction incentives, and options for the site as it reaches capacity.
