Guysborough Waste Management Facility
Nova Scotia adopted a Solid Waste Resource Management Strategy in 1995 requiring second generation (double liner) landfills in Nova Scotia by 2006. After comprehensive study, the Municipality determined that its current landfill site was an ideal location for a second generation facility.
The Municipality of the District of Guysborough has 20-year agreements with 17 municipal units on Cape Breton Island and in the Eastern Mainland of the Province. As a result, the Municipality provides waste management services to 230,000 Nova Scotians. That agreement is in effect until 2026. This leadership initiative reduced the number of landfills in the region from seven to one. The award-winning facility is monitored and maintained to strict environmental standards. A Community Liaison Committee has also been established and meets regularly.
The Waste Management Facility is located at 151 Waste Management Road off Route 16 Meagher’s Hill, between the Communities of Boylston and Lincolnville. It is open Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon and closed Sunday and on statutory holidays, including November 11.
