DUMPSTER USAGE

Claystone Waste uses dumpsters or 4-yard bins throughout our operations for collection of waste. They can be found in use for both urban and rural waste collection.

Garbage placed in dumpsters should be bagged to ensure that the waste does not get scattered when the dumpster is tipped into our collection trucks. Bagging household waste also reduces odours, which is beneficial for everyone and it also lowers the risk of attracting pests and nuisance animals.

Do not place heavy items such as shingles, bricks, and concrete into dumpsters, as our trucks will not be able to tip them. Do not put household appliances, electronics, liquids, greases, ashes, auto parts, tires, animal carcasses, batteries, hazardous wastes (e.g. cleaning chemicals, CFL bulbs) gases, and or medical wastes into dumpsters. Some of these items can be recycled or disposed of at local transfer stations. Please visit our website for complete information.

 Be sure to close the lids after depositing garbage. Don’t pile large items and other garbage around the dumpster. For all residents in the region, large items can be taken year round at several transfer stations. Claystone Waste also provides specific large item pick up days for the urban municipalities. Our Pacmor collection trucks cannot collect large items and leaving these items is a nuisance for the municipalities. Dumpsters should not be overloaded so that the lid does not close.

In the winter, rural bin users need to ensure that the bin is accessible for our collection vehicles. The road must be passable and snow must be cleared up to the dumpster so that it can be tipped.
