Visiting a Roundup

Once you reach a Roundup site, an attendant will:

  • Record your name, address, phone number and the community you live in.
  • Check to ensure the types of materials you are dropping off are accepted.
  • Direct you to the location(s) to drop off material.

When at the bin or location to drop off material:

  • Take the time to place the material in the correct bin or barrel so is can be processed properly.
  • If in doubt, leave it out and locate an attendant in a safety vest for advice on where the materials should be placed.

To get in and out of the transfer site quickly and safely remember:

  • Be considerate and patient when dropping off your materials.
  • Bring age-appropriate people to help unload your materials.
  • Staff are not available to assist with the unloading of any items.
  • Materials left at sites before or after the scheduled times are considered illegal dumping and are subject to bylaw enforcement.
