Institutional, Commercial, and Industrial (ICI) Waste Diversion

Divertible material is substances that can easily be recycled by members of the industrial commercial and institutional sectors.  These include corrugated cardboard, paper, aluminum, and steel.  Businesses should ensure the following items are not disposed of with regular garbage.  These materials must be stored separately and bought to the recycling depot.

  • Newspapers
  • Flyers
  • Glossy magazines
  • Telephone books
  • Office paper (white/coloured paper, envelopes with or without windows)
  • Shredded paper
  • Paperback books
  • Hardback books (covers removed)
  • Corrugated cartons (corrugated cardboard has an inner waffle layer)
  • File folders
  • Catalogues

Since May 1, 2006, all waste loads delivered to the Wild Cove Landfill from the ICI sector that contain any amount of divertible material will be subject to a surcharge.  This surcharge will be applied in addition to all other relevant tipping fees and charges.
