  • Couches, chairs, mattresses, and other household furniture items too large for curbside pickup
  • Fridges, freezers, washers, dryers and other large household appliances (will be recycled)
  • Computers, televisions and other household electronics (will be recycled)

Non-accepted Materials

Secure Your Load Properly

Residents are reminded to secure their load properly by tying large items to their vehicle and covering loose material with a tarp. 

Reusable Items

If you have items that are in good condition and can be reused, you can donate them.

Goodwill Industries of Alberta will be on site at select Big Bin Events. Their trucks will accept gently used clothing and housewares. Check out their Smart Donating Guide to learn what can be donated to Goodwill.

The online Reuse and Recycling Directory will provide you with a list of charities, businesses and City services that can reuse, recycle or dispose of your unwanted household items.
