Niagara Region re-opens Niagara Falls Wastewater Treatment Plant for RV disposals

Posted by Niagara Region on Thursday, April 16th, 2020

Niagara Region is re-opening its Niagara Falls Wastewater Treatment Plant (3450 Stanley Ave.) for recreational vehicle (RV) disposals on Sundays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to allow the public to empty their RV wastewater holding tanks.RV disposal sites were closed along with all Niagara Region facilities on March 23 as part of actions to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, with the rise in local area residents and first responders using RVs to self-isolate, the Region has re-opened a location to service those self-isolating in RVs to properly dispose of the wastewater.

“We saw there is a need for our RV disposal service to re-open in some capacity due to the number of people using RVs and trailers for self-isolation.” said Joe Tonellato, director of water and wastewater services. “To find a way to meet this need, we reviewed our locations and found that, with some operations adjustments, we could safely open our Niagara Falls Wastewater Treatment Plant to allow for RV disposal while still being able to maintain the necessary physical distance between visitors and staff.”

Niagara Region is requesting those using RVs come to empty holding tanks only when necessary. Potential visitors are also reminded that anyone returning from the United States must self-isolate for 14 days immediately upon returning to Canada, which includes not visiting an RV disposal site.

Anyone requiring RV tank disposal services outside of the location and time offered by Niagara Region is reminded there are private RV disposal services available and are encouraged to contact those locations to determine availability of services.

Niagara Region’s wastewater treatment plants remain open to licenced sewage haulers for disposal of residential, commercial and industrial hauled sewage according to regular hours and locations of operation.
