  • Tires
  • Metal

*Note: We cannot dispose of refrigerators, air conditioners and freezers due to the refrigerants such as Freon.

It is illegal to place any form of hazardous waste in a disposal dumpster. Please inquire at the time of booking if you have any questions about the materials you want removed.

The City of Corner Brook holds a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Disposal Day twice a year. To find out when the next HHW Disposal Day will take place visit the City’s website at www.cornerbrook.com

Can I have the container placed on my lawn? In my driveway?

We can place the container on your lawn. However, it may leave an imprint, as the container is heavy. Normally the container is placed in the homeowner’s driveway.

How can I get rid of bulky items, such as appliances?

We prefer to have appliances recycled, the city offers a spring clean to all residents, at which time appliances are collected curbside at no cost to the homeowner. We do provide a special collection service to residents separate from our container service.

Do I need to call to have the container picked up or emptied?

Yes, it is your responsibility to schedule all tips and removals.

What areas do you service?

What services do you provide?

Roll-off and front-end load temporary container rentals.

How do I properly load a bin?

  • Try to EVENLY DISTRIBUTE the waste. This makes for easier pickup and safer transport of the loaded bin.
  • Please SEPARATE YOUR WASTE. Do not mix inert material (dirt, concrete, brick, block and asphalt) with other waste (plaster, drywall, tiles, wood, shingles, furniture, appliances, etc).
  • We will NOT pick up an overloaded bin, as it is unsafe to transport and may result in a large fine from city authorities.
