Sort your load before drop-off
If you come to the Landfill or Transfer Station with a mixed load of items, you can:
- Weigh in, then drop off one item type at a time, and loop back to the weigh scales after each item is dropped off and fees will be based on each item type
- Weigh all items at once and dispose of everything at the garbage rate
The Landfill and Transfer Station encourage you to sort your load before drop-off to ensure you do not have to pay additional fees.
If recyclable items make up 5% or more of your garbage load, a 50% surcharge will be added to your fees. Recyclable items include:
Materials recycled through take-back recycling programs (such as paint, used oil, batteries, electronics, tires, and more) are not allowed to be disposed of as garbage. If your garbage load includes one or more of these materials and is not removed before disposal, you will be charged an additional $50.
Check Metro Vancouver Recycles to see if an item can be recycled.
All rates will be rounded up to the nearest dollar. Tax is not charged on fees and rates.
