Free Large Item Disposal Opportunities (FLIDO)

Loyalist Township has a program to allow Township residents to dispose of large items at our landfills at no charge. Free Large Item Disposal Opportunities, or FLIDO, may be used any time the landfills are open for business. 

One FLIDO is considered to be the equivalent of one pickup truck load, having a cargo capacity of 2.44 metres (8 feet) by 1.22 metres (4 feet) by 0.6 metres (2 feet) = 1.78 cubic metres (64 cubic feet). 

All residents of Loyalist Township, both on the mainland and on Amherst Island, are entitled to two FLIDO visits per calendar year.

How to Use a FLIDO:

If you have used all your opportunities for the year, regular disposal fees will apply. The current tipping fee is $125/tonne, with a $15 minimum charge per visit. 

What Qualifies as a Large Item

Large Items are things that are not hazardous, reusable, or recyclable. Examples of
