2020 FALL LARGE ITEM PICK UP PROGRAM RESUMES
After a suspension in the spring to the 2020 Large Item Collection Program due to the pandemic,
we are pleased to announce this program will resume in October. This Program is provided at
no charge to regional municipal residents.
As in the past, urban residents will need to place their large items directly onto the front street,
by the curb, the evening before their scheduled pick up as identified below. They are asked not
to place items on the grass or lawn, but rather directly on the street as it is easier for Claystone
Waste staff to clean up any broken materials. Please place all items at least 3
feet (1 metre) from parked vehicles.
The fall urban collection schedule is as follows:
Hamlet of Bruce – Thursday, October 1
Town of Viking – Tuesday, October 6
Village of Ryley – Thursday, October 15
Village of Holden – Tuesday, October 20
Town of Tofield – Tuesday, October 27
For rural regional residents, large items can be taken to the transfer station
year round. We ask that they check our website to see what large items are
acceptable at which transfer station site.
Fridges, freezers, water coolers and window air conditioning units are acceptable,
however there is a $25 charge for Freon removal. Due to the pandemic, urban
residents will need to pay for the Freon removal at either the local Town/Village
office. Once payment has been made, a sticker will be provided that needs to be
placed on either the front or side of the appliance.
Lindbrook and Viking Transfer Stations accept Freon-containing appliances year-round for the same $25 charge and can pay when bringing their appliance for disposal.
Items acceptable for collection in this program include mattresses, sofas, recliners, white goods (stove, washing machine, etc.) and appliances, tires and propane tanks.
Items that are unacceptable for the collection program include grass clippings, trees, tree branches, bags of household garbage, small items that would fit into the neighbourhood waste bin, and cardboard boxes. These items can be broken down and placed in the bin in the alley. Electronic waste should be taken to a transfer station. Chunks of concrete or cement must be taken to the landfill site in Ryley.
