Banned Items

How are restrictions enforced?

Loads of waste are inspected when delivered to an RDN Solid Waste Facility for disposal. If a load contains excessive amounts of recyclable or compostable materials, the hauler is subject to penalties under RDN bylaw, in addition to the cost of disposal. In some situations, the hauler may not be allowed to deposit the waste and may be asked to remove the material from the site.

Do some wastes have special disposal requirements?

Due to environmental, health and safety concerns some materials require specific preparation, permits and/or appointments for acceptance at the landfill.
