    What Happens to My Hard Waste?

    Items may be collected by multiple trucks. To save space and keep costs to a minimum, bulky items are compacted in the trucks. Most items are recycled or reused where possible. All items are taken to the Knox Transfer Station for sorting and recycling. Items that are reusable are sold at the Recycled Goods Store. For a short video on what happens to your waste, visit our contractor's website.

    Consider donating, selling or giving away items in good condition first.

    Disposing of Items Not Accepted

    See other recycling and disposal options and the Recycling and Waste Centre for disposal of items that aren’t accepted through our Hard Waste Collection Service.
