New scale and scale house will improve traffic flow and customer wait times.


Construction will begin next week at the Oxford County Waste Management Facility (landfill) to add a second scale and new scale house to the Salford Road facility. Customers may experience delays during construction, which will last approximately 6-8 weeks. When complete, the new scale and scale house will improve traffic flow and customer wait times at the landfill.

Oxford County weighs all vehicles that enter the Waste Management Facility for reporting and monitoring purposes. Residential customers can access waste diversion programs free of charge, including cardboard, bulky Styrofoam, plastic film, electronics, and scrap metal. Disposal of leaf and yard waste and household hazardous waste is also free. A tipping fee applies to loads containing garbage (mixed solid waste) and/or construction and demolition materials based on weight. All customers exit the facility back over the scale, and those who need to settle any fees, do so before leaving the site.

During construction, additional gates and flag people will help manage traffic flow to ensure everyone can access the facility efficiently. Once constructed, the new 80-foot scale will allow the separation of incoming and outgoing traffic, significantly reducing customer wait times.

Oxford County's Waste Management Facility (landfill) is a one-stop shop for residents and businesses in Oxford County to dispose of garbage and recyclable material. Regular operating hours for the Oxford County Waste Management Facility are Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. For more information, including construction updates, please visit
