Two waste recovery facilities are located in the Southwest Avalon 1) on the former Placentia Landfill site on Fox Harbour Road and 2) on the former St. Joseph’s Landfill site. The WRF sites accept bulk household waste such as appliances, furniture, mattresses, hot water tanks, electronics, metals, propane tanks, car and truck tires (rims removed), ATV and motorcycle tires, construction and demolition material, shingles, brush, etc. We will not accept anything that is recyclable or materials that decompose, including cardboard, clothing, food items, leaves, grass clippings, ash, and fishnets.
Hours of operation for the Placentia Waste Recovery Facility and the St. Joseph’s Waste Recovery Facility are Tuesdays and Thursday 12 pm to 4 pm and Saturdays 8 am to 4 pm excluding holidays.
Woodchips are available to the public at some of the sites for pick up free of charge – supply is limited and will vary by site. Please check with the Site Attendant for more information.
These sites do not accept commercial material including materials from contractors or businesses. Trucks having any commercial signage will be refused entry.
