Open Regular Landfill Hours

Storing hazardous items in your home can be a fire hazard and dangerous to your family.  Also, it is unlawful to dispose of hazardous items at the Steinbach Landfill. Items collected at the city's Hazardous Waste facility include:

Proper Battery Disposal

The City asks that you do not throw out batteries with your regular garbage. The Solid Waste Department encourages the public to bring household batteries to the Landfill, Jake Epp Public Library or The Source in Clearspring Centre. A disposal box is available at the Landfill scale building for several varieties of batteries, including alkaline, rechargeable, cell phone, and power tool batteries. Automotive batteries are collected separately at the Landfill. Batteries are then returned to the manufacturer for proper disposal and recycling.
