Sanitary Sewer Flushing

The Town of Tillsonburg is continuing its sanitary sewer maintenance program.

August 23- September 30
Sanitary sewer flushing will occur in areas south of Concession Street West and west of Rolph Street. Affected neighbourhoods include Baldwin Place, Bridle Path, Edgewood Dr., Hickory Hills, Reynolds Way, Trottier, Victoria Wood, Westmount, Whispering Pines and Woodhaven.

The work will be performed on weekdays between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. High traffic areas may be flushed after 7:00 p.m. to ensure safety for contractors and residents.

During this work, a bubbling and/or vacuum effect may be noticed in your drains and/or toilets. If you notice this occurring, close all toilet seats and cover any floor drains during the flushing period. In order to prevent sewer gases from migrating into the home, it is important to refill all plumbing traps by running the water in your sinks and floor drains after the work is complete.


2024 Budget Survey

Have you filled out the 2024 Budget survey yet? Let both the Town of Tillsonburg and Oxford County know which services you think should be a priority in the coming budget year. Fill out the survey at www.tillsonburg.ca/2024survey by August 31.


Illegal dumping will cost you

Bylaw 3105 prohibits the dumping of refuse and debris on private or public property. Illegal dumping means depositing refuse or debris on private property or lands owned by the Town. Check the Transfer Station hours before you visit. Items left at the facility outside of operating hours will be considered dumping. A recent investigation resulted in a fine of $615.

  • parks and trails
