Garbage Collection

  • Residential: Wednesdays

The Town of Tofield would like to take the opportunity to remind all residents of the proper use of the Solid Waste Collection Bins provided by Beaver Municipal Solutions.
All residential garbage must be bagged and placed inside the bin.
All yard waste must be bagged and placed inside the bin.
Branches may be placed in the bin if they are cut into three foot lengths.
If the bin you regularly use is full, please place your bag in a nearby bin.
Any items placed beside the bin will not be collected.
Large Items (Appliances, mattresses, etc.) may not be placed in the bin.
Hazardous materials (household paint, propane bottles, etc.) may not be placed in the bin.
Heavy items (Shingles, Concrete, etc.) may not be placed in the bin
Large Items will be collected twice a year – May and October – from your front street.
A Hazardous Waste Collection Site is offered once a year – normally in June
Items may be taken to the Tofield Transfer Station (open Mon, Wed & Fri 10-6) or the Ryley Landfill (open Mon-Fri 9-5 & Sat 9-3:30).
Additional information on acceptable items is available at: beavermunicipal.com/residential-services/acceptable-items/

Thank you for your consideration when using the collection bins.

Residents and businesses are to use the supplied receptacles in alley ways, or wheel the individual canisters to the curb, if the residence does not have an alley. Please contact the Beaver Municipal Solutions for further information.
