Tips from the Landfill

  • Our Recycling Program has changed! Tin cans, paper, plastic and glass can go in the same bin. Please follow signage at the Landfill Site, speak to the Waste Mgmt Co-ordinator or staff on site if you have questions about where things should go.
  • Please take lids off any containers that will hold air, this will take less space in the shipping bin and make compacting easier.
  • Please rinse cans and jars. NO FULL cans or jars of food in the recycling bin.
  • Please empty compost out of plastic bags.
  • We now bale hard cardboard with our Corrugated Cardboard (such as cereal boxes, pop cases, Kraft dinner boxes).
  • Please note when dumping construction rubble or shingles, DON’T DUMP on the driveway or on sand (less chance of a flat tire).
  • Please sort metal from rubble.
  • Please only put clean wood on the burn pile (no plastic or furniture).
  • Please drop off any reusable items at the Machar Mall located at the front of the Landfill Site.
