The Transfer Station has a re-use centre on site. Residents are able to drop off gently-used items that other residents may find useful. Please be advised that textiles and/or clothing are not accepted in the re-use centre.

Mattress Recycling Program

Please be advised that on September 1, 2015 the County and City of Peterborough will be introducing a new recycling program for mattresses and box springs. Studies indicate that approximately 11,000 mattresses and box springs find their way to the Peterborough City/County Waste Management Facility every year. The Township of Cavan Monaghan will be joining the mattress program and therefore, as of August 1, 2015, the Transfer Station will no longer be accepting mattresses and box springs.

Mattresses and box springs must now be taken to the Peterborough City/County Waste Management Facility located at 1260 Bensfort Road. The cost is $10.00 per unit.
