Why can’t I put metal items to the curb?

There is a metal ban in our landfill, metal items must be disposed of properly. Also, the trucks used for the regular weekly curbside garbage collection and bi-weekly recycling collection cannot fit items in it that are larger than garbage bag size (approximately 2 ft x 2 ft x 1 ft).

How can I have my metal items picked up at my house? 
If you are not able to bring your items to the Residential Drop-Off and you require a metal pick-up at your residence, contact a private waste hauler for fees and to schedule a time at your convenience. For waste hauler contact information click here!


Is there any other way to get rid of my metal? Can I dispose of it on my own?
Yes. Metal and other waste may be taken to the Residential Drop-Off Facility at Robin Hood Bay - to the right, just inside the entrance to the Robin Hood Bay Waste Management Facility at 340 East White Hills Road. This facility is open Tuesday to Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no charge for the disposal of any waste at the Residential Drop-Off Facility.
