Storing hazardous items in your home can be a fire hazard and dangerous to your family. Many items can be disposed of at our household hazardous waste depot open regular Landfill hours. Our depot recycles paint, cleaners, batteries, light bulbs, and automotive fluids. Click here for a complete list of accepted items.
Used wood from things like furniture and building construction is accepted at the landfill. A chipping machine is brought in regularly to reduce the wood pile to chips. Due to the various treatments that wood is exposed to, the chipped wood is not suitable for yard mulch, however it is used in active cell construction at the landfill itself. Wood waste should not be included in compost materials.
Used oil, used oil filters, and used plastic oil containers need to be disposed of properly so they can be recycled into useful products instead of threatening our environment. Recycle your used oil, free of charge, at the Steinbach Eco Centre, located at the Steinbach Landfill site.
A reminder that used oil and tires can be recycled year round at the Steinbach Landfill's Eco Centre, located at 104 Hanover Road East.
Electronic waste or E-waste is collected at the Eastman Recycling Services building located in Steinbach's industrial park at 60 Industrial Road. The industry sponsored program runs year round in Steinbach. Items collected include computers, monitors, printers, and scanners. Printer cartridges may be dropped off at Staples to be recycled. The public is encouraged to recycle all recyclable items.
