Election Signs

Note: Election signs are only accepted during an active election.


For many candidates, they may wish to collect and hang onto their signs for reuse in the next election. 


For those who are looking for another option, Solid Waste Services can offer recycling for all types of temporary election signs. We will accept signs made of:

  • Polypropylene (PP) Coreplast
  • Fibre - similar to boxboard

Signs will be accepted at all six County waste facilities at no charge.  

  • Signs must be free of contamination. Remove metal/wood stakes, nails, fasteners, etc. 
  • Signs will be placed in the marked temporary recycling containers. Follow site attendant's directions.
  • Place wood in the wood bin or pile (where available). Place metal in the metal bin. Regular fees apply. 

Please note any signs that are not free of contamination will be treated as garbage and regular fees will apply.
