  2. Ottawa Trail Road Public Dump: If you have a large amount of garbage, or construction waste from a home renovation you bring this waste to the Ottawa public dump.
  3. Private Owned Garbage Dump: Ottawa also has three public dumps where you can dispose of garbage and recycling material, these include:
    1. Waste Connections of Canada Inc (WCC) (Previously Huneault Dump)is located at 3354 Navan Road. Please contact WCC Canada Inc. directly at 613-824-7289 for information.

  4. Rent a Dumpster: When doing a home renovation, cleaning out a house or repairing a basement you may have a large amount of waste. Instead of loading this up in a trailer and bringing to dump you can rent a dumpster. Ottawa has over a dozen ‘dumpster rental’ companies that can provide this service. Your best option is to call 3-4 to get pricing on sizes, costs and timelines.
