The Fenelon Landfill will be closed for the winter and early spring effective on New Year’s Day.

Located at 341 Mark Road in Cameron, the landfill has previously been open during the winter from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.

The City of Kawartha Lakes announced the temporary closure on Monday (November 29), citing the need to extend the life of the landfill site.

“The landfill is currently estimated to be at capacity within the next three or four years,” a media release reads. “By extending the site’s life to six to eight years through this new winter closure, it delays the site from closing year round and prolongs continued service in the summer busier season.”

The Fenelon Landfill will reopen on May 1, 2022 and operate during summer hours until the next winter hour period begins on October 16, 2022.

To ensure sufficient landfill disposal services are still available during the winter, the hours at the Somerville Landfill (381 Ledge Hill Rd., Burnt River) and the Lindsay Ops Landfill (51 Wilson Rd., Lindsay) have been extended.

The Somerville Landfill will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and the Lindsay Ops Landfill will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays (including Wednesday) and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays
