What Can Go In the Bin?
We don't want you to have any surprises regarding what can and can't go in the bins. Often, adding even a little garbage to a bin that is full of other types of construction material can result in unwanted disposal fees at the dumping facility. When Quiet Creek contacts you to confirm your drop off, it is a great opportunity to mention what you plan to put in the bin. You can also feel free to give us a call to discuss your project. Our team is happy to work with you to ensure the best possible savings and fees.
Appliances (Freon must be Removed from Fridges)
Bicycles and Parts
Carpets & Rugs
Bath Tubs & Showers
Clean Yard Materials
Tires and Rubber (Extra Fees May Apply)
Garbage (Avoid Mixing with Other Material)
Beds & Mattresses
It is very important that certain electronics not be put in the bin for disposal at the dump. Bin contents get sorted, and items from the following list that are found will be separated from the other bin contents, and the item(s) must be taken to an appropriate disposal facility. To account for the added time, manpower, and fuel used, Quiet Creek must charge a flat $100 fee to cover this.
To avoid this added cost, be sure to exclude these items from your bin. Separate them and transport the items to an approved Electronics EPRA Drop-Off Centre.
