Do you have a trailer full of trash or scrap metals and you need a place to dump? Below we have compiled a list of residential friendly sites for depositing your general waste, mattresses, construction debris, appliances and other scrap metals.
Trail Waste Facility
Address: 4475 Trail Road
Location: Near Moodie/Fallowfield
This is the City of Ottawa’s landfill.
Paper/Cardboard/Books etc: Inform them that you have paper products and the workers will direct you to a large bin where you hand load your paper for recycling.
Tires: Inform them that you have tires to recycle and you’ll be directed to a paved area where you can drop them off for recycling.
Electronic Items: Specify that you are carrying these items in your load so they can point you to a dumpster where all the electronic waste and small household appliances go.
Appliances: Please note that you cannot deposit appliances at the landfill that contain coolant or any type of Freon. If the coolant has been removed, the appliance must be tagged by a professional, stating that the chemical has been removed properly. If your appliance does not use coolant (such as a stove or dishwasher) then you will be directed to the proper disposal area by on-site staff. If your appliance has coolant, you’ll need to schedule a pickup with us or contact Bryans Refrigeration to have the Freon removed.
Garbage/Debris: Give them an idea of the type of debris and they will direct you to an area of the landfill where you can deposit.
Cost: The rates vary for different materials so it is important to specify what you are carrying in your load. For example, they have a reduced rate for yard debris so be sure to sort your load before going to the landfill.
Tip: Saturday’s are very busy and it is advisable to be there right at open time to avoid a long wait to get in and out of the landfill.

This is an indoor transfer station owned by Progressive Waste Solutions. They can only accept waste as they are not a recycling facility. No tires, paper, electronic waste or appliances are permitted.
Cost: The rate is based on the weight of the contents in your load. You should be wearing steel toe boots and they may ask you to wear a hard hat and vest to improve visibility.

Previously known as Cohens & Cohens, AIM Recycling Centre is a depot for commercial and residential visitors to drop off electronic waste and other metals for recycling. The rates vary for different types of metals and e-waste. In addition, there is a different rate for loads that are unsorted. Be sure to sort your items into specific categories, for example:
• Put all your electronic waste together (phones, television sets, radios, etc.).
• Appliances go together in their own category, from toasters to ovens.
• Pure metals such as stainless steel plates or copper pipes should be sorted and separated based on their type, before entering the facility.
Each time you deposit a specific category of materials, you have to exit the facility to get your vehicle weighed before re-entering to deposit another kind of recyclable metal.

I called Capital Junk last week to come in and clean up after I had taken the drywall and insulation due to water damage. They were surprisingly professional and polite…
We were in a pinch trying to clear out our house in time to sell…Capital junk were able to come right away, exactly when they said they would come – they were super friendly, did a great job, and even swept up after they were done!
Affordable price, great service and the same day I called they came.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you remove compost as well?
We can also remove compost with your yard waste if you want. Composting is a great way to keep organic material out of landfills and can provide nutrient rich organic material for gardening. However, if you have a compost bin and decide that you don't want to keep it or the compost within, let us know and we can remove it for you.
Can I put tree branches in my recycle bin?
Tree branches and other wood materials cannot be recycled through curbside recycling pickup. You may think that since recyclable paper is made from wood, the wood materials would be okay to put out with your recycling as well. The truth is that recycling facilities are not equipped to process wood materials. Branches and other natural wood materials should be placed in yard waste bags.
How soon can I book my yard waste removal?
Do I have to be home when Capital Junk hauls away my yard waste?
Provided we can access your materials and have a solid understanding as to what needs to be removed, we will call you once on site with an exact price. If you would like us to proceed with our Ottawa junk removal services we’ll process your credit card remotely upon completion. The items will have to be outside or under a carport as we cannot enter your home without the homeowner present. A receipt will be e-mailed to you promptly.

That includes tree branches, tree stumps, roots, stems, trunks, leaves, soil, dirt, sant, winter salt, grit, plants, weed, pushes, and pretty much anything else that might end up in your yard.
