Acceptable and Unacceptable Waste

Ensure the proper disposal of your solid waste.

Municipal solid waste that is acceptable for disposal at the landfill consists of 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. Hazardous wastes that are radioactive, reactive, ignitable, corrosive, pathological, acidic or otherwise hazardous cannot be accepted by the regional landfill. Propane tanks cannot be disposed of; however, we do accept propane tanks as recyclable items and store them separately. Please let us know if you have any propane tanks you wish to get rid of.

We ask that all your waste be sorted so that materials can be put in the proper place and/or bin to help reduce the impact, and cost, to the landfill. If you do not know where something goes or if we can handle it, please ask the scale attendant or yard staff.

Please Note: many non-standard items can be accommodated by the regional landfill. To dispose of items appropriately, please let the scale attendant know exactly what you have. There may be an additional fee for handling of this material. If you are caught throwing any of this material away into regular waste stream, you will be charged for its cleanup.
