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.
