Changes Coming to City of Brandon Recycling/Yard Waste Depots

April 30, 2015

Brandon, MB – The City of Brandon’s Sanitation Department would like to advise the public that it will soon be transitioning to the use of larger, more user-friendly collection bins at its various community recycling and yard/garden waste depot locations.

In order to accommodate the switch out of the current bins at the City’s neighbourhood drop-off depots, users may notice a few changes, effective Friday, May 1st, 2015.

Specifically, the yard/garden waste drop-off depots located in Rideau Park and at Westridge Community Centre will be TEMPORARILY CLOSED, with residents in those areas encouraged to use the Eastview Landfill or the 34th Street and Victoria Avenue depot, respectively. Recycling and yard/garden waste bins are conveniently located outside the gates at the Eastview Landfill for after-hours drop-off.

Daily pick-up service at all other depot locations will continue as scheduled; however, residents may notice a different style of bin present in the depot drop-off area. These are temporary bins, but will be clearly marked as “Recycling” or “Yard/Garden Waste”. It is anticipated new bins will be in place at all depot locations later this spring and should result in financial savings for the City of Brandon, both in terms of the collection and sorting of materials from the depots.

The City of Brandon asks for the public’s patience as the transition to the new depot bin system is undertaken.

A reminder to all Brandon residents that refuse loads of 500 kilograms or less are free to dump at the Eastview Landfill, located at 3300 Victoria Avenue East. More information about the Eastview Landfill, including hours of operation, can be found here or by calling 204-729-2281.
