Waste & Recycling Facilities

Community Recycling Centre Locations

A Community Recycling Centre (CRC) is a place where residents can drop off things that aren’t picked up at the curb. There is no cost to drop off things that will be recycled but you have to pay to drop off garbage.

Waste Transfer Stations are for commercial customers and waste collection trucks to drop off waste.

Find out what can be dropped off at the Community Recycling Centre.
