Customers must drive over the weigh scales first before dropping off waste.

Public Drop Off Bins

The scale operator directs customers to a bin or drop off location. The site accepts most residential and commercial wastes.

Household wastes such as recyclables (blue bags), paper, cardboard, compost and garbage are delivered to one area. Read the Recycling Guide.

Construction and demolition wastes are delivered to a different area. Tipping fees are charged according to waste type. Debit and cash payments are accepted. 

Staff assist customers, answer questions and provide waste sorting brochures. Call (902) 543-2991 with questions or to set up a commercial account. 

 

Electronics Recycling Drop Off

Residents and businesses can drop off electronics free of charge during regular hours of operation.  Items such as TVs, stereos, microwaves and computers are accepted as part of the provincial recycling stewardship program.

 

Glycol & Oil Recycling Program

In January 2020: a new stewardship program began recycling used oil, glycol (antifreeze), oil filters, oil, glycol and diesel exhaust fluid containers of 50 litres or less (including containers for automotive parts cleaners and aerosol lubricants). These items were banned from landfill in 2020. Drop these items off for free, at the Community Recycling Centre.

Antifreeze and oil jugs will still be accepted in the blue bag (with cap on), if residents do not wish to drop them off.
