Solid Waste Management / Landfills

The Regional District operates two municipal solid waste landfills and one select waste landfill:

  • Foothills Boulevard Regional Landfill currently receives 96% of the municipal solid waste disposed of in the Regional District. This landfill is located within the City of Prince George.
  • Mackenzie Select Waste Landfill provides disposal services to the northern part of the region and also offers marshalling areas for fridges and freezers, metal, oil and filters, and anti-freeze.
  • Legrand Select Waste Landfill accepts select inert waste from both private and public sectors including demolition, land clearing debris and construction waste. Disposal is by appointment only.

Secure Loads

All loads arriving at Regional District facilities must be secured, or a double charge may be applied.

Secured Load means that motor vehicles entering the landfill have adequately covered and secured loads to prevent materials from shifting, moving, leaking, spilling, escaping, falling from or through, being blown off, dislodged from or deposited outside the vehicle while in transit.

Although items being transported may be heavy or packed in tightly, this still does not warrant it secure. Secure the load with enough cargo net, ropes, chains, straps, and/or bungee cords so it cannot shift, move or fall out. Cover the load completely with a tarp tied to the vehicle.  For more information, see the Secure Your Load handout

Bylaw No. 3166, Amendment Bylaw No. 3245, 2021 establishes tipping fees and regulations for solid waste disposal at Regional District facilities.

Swipe cards are invalid when a double charge is applied.
