Recycling and Waste
The Village of Neilburg home owners have three choices for disposing of wastes,
Curb-Side Garbage Pick-Up, Transfer Station (Dump) and Recycle Bins.
Tag-a-Bag, Curb-Side Garbage Pick-Up
Neilburg provides curbside garbage pick-up for all village residents for $1.00/bag.
Wednesday Morning is when all garbage with an Orange WYWRA tag will be picked up.
Please follow these simple rules:
1. All garbage MUST be bagged and tagged with an orange WYWRA sticker or it will not be picked up.
2. A garbage container is recommended to keep garbage contained until pick-up is made.
Garbage bags must remain intact when pulled from the container.
3. Tags are to be placed on each regular garbage bag (67 litres, 26” by 32”).
It is easiest to attach the tag after the bag is tied—either around the tie or prominently on a top surface.
4. The maximum weight of any bag is 20 kg or 44 lbs. If the weight exceeds this limit, two or more bags must be used.
If bags are too large or heavy they will not be picked up.
Orange WYWRA Garbage Tags are $1.00.
You may purchase yours at the Village Office during regular business hours.
RM of Hillsdale No. 440 Transfer Station (Dump)
