 Wood - plywood, particle board and OSB


Wood in this category includes plywood, particle board, MDF and OSB.
 
Throw it out - Black Cart
 
Small quantities of plywood can be put in the black cart. Wood pieces must be less than 15 cm (6") in diameter and shorter than 1.25 metres (4 ft.) so it can fit inside the cart. Please ensure the lid of the cart can close.
 
Broken household furniture made of particle board (bookshelves, shelving, tables etc.) can also go in the garbage.
 
Too much wood in the black cart can be an issue for collection as it can damage the garbage truck.
 
Throw it out - City landfills
 
Larger residential quantities (such as from renovations or demolitions) can be taken to any City landfill. Charges will apply for disposal at City landfills.
