Transfer Station #2 (Kingsville)

Winter Hours / Start Monday, November 6th, 2023

Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon.

Starting January 1st, 2022 all yard waste arriving in double axle trailers will be charged the commercial rate and must cross the scale upon arrival.

Effective January 1, 2019, the Essex-Windsor Solid Waste Authority will be restricting the use of Transfer Station #2 to small commercial, farm and residential vehicle and commercial packers. 

Due to operational constraints and safety concerns, we can no longer process tandem axle and tri-axle dump vehicles at our facility in a safe and efficient manner.  Tandem axle and tri-axle dump vehicles hauling waste and demolition debris will be directed to use the Regional Landfill Site, located at 7700 County Road 18, in the Municipality of Essex.

Any customer who would like more information or would like to express concerns, please call the Regional Landfill at 519-776-7941 ext. 1961 or 1962, or email tommarentette@ewswa.org or hfakih@ewswa.org.

Transfer Station #2 operates six days a week as a staffed, self-serve, self-serve public facility where residents and businesses can drop-off large volumes of waste for recycling or disposal. Most of the Essex-Windsor municipalities provide regular garbage, yard waste and recycling pick up at curbside, however Transfer Station #2 exists for those items which are too large for, or are in quantities large enough, to render them unacceptable at curbside.


Transfer Station #2 is located at 2021 Albuna Townline (County Rd. 31) in the Town of Kingsville.

Municipal Hazardous or Special Waste (MHSW)

Many everyday household chemical products are considered ‘toxic’ to our local environment. It is extremely important for all homeowners to remember that once they are finished with a household chemical product, the “leftover or unused portion” should NEVER be thrown in the garbage, poured down the kitchen sink or a neighbourhood storm drain. When toxic products are disposed of improperly (i.e. as litter or poured down storm drains or kitchen sinks), they have the potential to “leach” into the ground, become airborne, or contaminate our local watersheds.

Residents can drop off the following products – free of charge. Please note, this list is not comprehensive – this is just a sample of the types of products accepted. For more information regarding household chemical waste please refer to the Municipal Hazardous or Special Waste (MHSW)section of the website.
