The City is repaving internal roads at the Waste Resource Innovation Centre and public drop-off areas located at 110 Dunlop Drive starting July 30. Work will take about one month to complete, weather permitting.

Site access and detours

During paving, the City will alternate public access to the three drop-off gates. Please follow signs on site which will direct you to open gates for drop-offs.

The administration office, including the public parking lot in front of the administration building, will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians from August 2-3 and for approximately one week at the end of August (August 27-31) for paving. Administration office customer service will be accessible by email at waste@guelph.ca or phone at 519-767-0598. For composter sales and cart exchanges please call ahead so we can make alternate arrangements. Please check this webpage and posted signs for updates.

Dunlop Drive will remain open to all traffic, including pedestrians.

People accessing the site during paving work should expect delays and plan extra time to get through the public drop-off gates. The City recommends delaying your visit to the Waste Resource Innovation Centre and public drop-off areas until the construction work is complete. If not possible, customers are encouraged to avoid peak days such as Saturdays and avoid peak times during weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
