More Hours, More Convenience at Hartland Landfill

Jun 03, 2024

Victoria, BC- Beginning June 15, 2024, Hartland Landfill’s new Saturday hours will be 7 am to 5 pm, adding three extra hours for a one-year pilot period. Weekday hours remain Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm and it will continue to be closed on Sundays and statutory holidays.

The newly expanded hours at Hartland Landfill are designed to make recycling and waste disposal easier and more accessible while reducing wait times for site access. The goal of this pilot project is to increase the amount of recyclable material collected, thereby decreasing the amount of recyclable material ending up in the garbage and helping the region reduce waste by one third.

Hartland Landfill has seen an increase in customers using the pay-by-weight bin area and the recycling/household hazardous waste area. This can lead to long line-ups on Hartland Avenue, particularly at peak times (Mondays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and any morning following a holiday). New material bans on clean and treated wood waste and asphalt shingles, coming into effect at Hartland Landfill in 2024, may further increase the demand at the public drop-off depot.
