The mixed waste, which is essentially everything else not listed under clean fill, must be uncontaminated by organic waste such as food or biological waste. Metal is sorted out to be scrapped, cardboard and glass are sorted to be recycled, as are plastics and any other recyclables, and any non-recyclables are taken to the appropriate garbage facility in Toronto.
Clean fill is considered to be soil, interlock, or concrete. We separate these types into different bins to be transported to the appropriate location. Interlock can be ground down to make new bricks, as can concrete, and soil can be used as filler or for any other number of things. Asphalt must be kept separate from both clean fill and mixed waste, but we take care of that as well−it can be recycled and made into new asphalt.
We cannot dispose of cylinders, aerosol cans, tires, paint or any other type of hazardous waste. In addition, we do accept Red Bricks, however, the rates are higher than the regular soil or concrete rates. Please see the rates given below.
