Other Controlled Waste

In addition to hazardous waste, asbestos, invasive plants, and euthanized animals, the CSWM service handles many other types of controlled waste.  Controlled waste is any solid waste requiring special handling at the waste management centres, and can include (but is not limited to):

  • Creosote pilings or timbers
  • Large dead animals
  • Steel cables
  • Emergency and disaster debris
  • Low density/bulky waste including styrofoam floats, fish coolers, and similar items that are of significant bulk but of low density.

Disposal of controlled waste at a CSWM waste management centre requires 24-48 hours advanced notice so a site can be prepared.  If you would like to make arrangements to dispose of controlled waste material, please contact us.
