Reuse Options

All County waste facilities remain open with their regular operating hours. Enhanced safety protocols are in effect. Reuse Centres remain closed until further notice.

The health and safety of the public and staff is the top priority at County waste facilities. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we collectively work through this challenging period together.

Please use curbside collection services for regular household waste.
Although all County waste facilities remain open with their regular operating hours, residents are encouraged to continue using the curbside collection service for regular household waste. Trips to waste facilities should be reserved for the disposal of items/materials that cannot be managed through curbside collection services.
Follow these enhanced safety protocols at waste facilities.

The following enhanced safety protocols at waste facilities remain in effect:

  • Please use credit or debit for payment, preferably the tap function.
  • Maintain physical distancing, and be expedient on site.
  • The use of masks or face (mouth/nose) coverings is strongly encouraged.
  • As always, follow staff directions.

To reuse is to use an item more than once in its original form. Giving a second life to used goods diverts waste from County landfills, supports local charities and their recipients, and saves resources and energy needed to make new consumer goods. Together we can make a difference!

There are many opportunities for consumers to reduce waste by using goods as long as they have utility or value. In addition to repairing what is broken, giving to friends, family or community charities, holding a garage sale or selling through classified ads, the County suggests:  

Reuse Centres

Three of the County's waste facilities have Reuse Centres. Residents pay to dispose of the item, but can take anything from a Reuse Centre at no charge. A bulletin board is located in each Reuse Centre for bulky items (those that take more than one person to move).

Not sure what to do with an unwanted item?

Use the Recycle Coach waste app to look up how to properly dispose of certain items.
