Dig out your large household items that need disposal and join us at one of the upcoming Big Bin Events.

This free service allows residents the opportunity to dispose of large household items which cannot be set out for regular waste collection, such as large furniture, appliances, renovation materials (wood, countertops, tiles, etc.) and yard waste.

The Solid Waste Services team will be on-site to support the collection and unloading of items.

Electronic waste (E-Waste) such as computers, televisions and other electronics will also be accepted for recycling. Household hazardous waste such as used oil, paints and batteries will also be accepted for environmentally friendly disposal.

Residents are advised that commercial, construction, industrial and animal waste will not be accepted at these events.

Refrigerators/freezers/air conditioners/water coolers will be subject to a $42.90 fee for CFC removal. Those that have CFC removed beforehand are required to have documentation from a certified technician. Failure to produce documentation could result in charges for CFC removal.

Mattresses and box springs are also subject to a $20 fee (per piece) for disposal.

Residents will require photo ID and proof of address before depositing for these items. These items will also be collected as part of the Heavy Item Pickup in early June with the same fee requirements. 

Additional fees will not be collected at the events, but with the proper ID, fees can be added to monthly utility bills.

For more information on disposal of large items please call Pulse at 780-743-7000, or visit

All Winter Maintenance Zones are relaxed until further notice.
