As of March 25, Waste Management has suspended curbside collection of large household item / bulk goods for single family homes and apartments with six units of less until April 17 as a proactive measure and to redeploy collection staff to prioritize regular curbside collection of waste, recycling and organics.
During this temporary service change, residents are encouraged to hold on to their large household items until the service has resumed. For residents who need to dispose of their large item, they can be brought to a Region landfill site for disposal, free of charge. Be prepared to provide your address to confirm your property is eligible for this service.
Large items brought to Walker Environmental will require a disposal fee.

To ensure the safety of others, if you are currently practising self-isolation or have any flu-like symptoms, you are not permitted to enter any landfill site.
