Items Accepted

Municipal solid waste acceptable for collection means mixed household and commercial solid waste that is non-hazardous, and does not contain free liquid. Construction and demolition wastes should be broken into pieces (i.e. lumber no longer than 3 feet – 910 millimetres – in length) in order that our truck compaction equipment can accept the waste.

Hazardous wastes that are radioactive, reactive, ignitable, corrosive, pathological, acidic or otherwise hazardous cannot be picked up by collection equipment. Propane tanks cannot be picked up.

Large items should be set aside for pick-up during our seasonal large item collection, or brought to our transfer stations, or the Beaver Municipal Solutions landfill near Ryley.
