Nipissing First Nation (NFN) provides on-reserve residents with weekly curbside garbage collection, and bi-weekly curbside recycling collection.
Public Works staff completes collection on Mondays, unless there is a holiday (then collection moves to Tuesday). Holidays are reflected in the 2019 Garbage & Recycling Calendar.
In 2018, we serviced over 800 homes, and estimate that 75% of residents are participating in our recycling program (Aanji-Aapichitooyang).
NFN Landfill Information
The NFN Landfill on Mukwa Miikan is open for membership from Saturday to Tuesday from 9:00am to 5:00pm year-round. The Landfill accepts electronic, metal and tires for recycling and has a small re-use centre for residents to drop off unwanted, but still useful, items.
The Landfill Attendant monitors the landfill site in accordance with the policies and procedures established by Chief and Council, and as directed by the Public Works Supervisor. The attendant monitors all users of the site to control the dumping of materials, while keeping an organized and safe areas for users who enter the site. NFN members are able to access the Household Hazardous Waste Depot for free drop-off of hazardous products.
