Burnable and Green Waste Drop-off Program

The drop-off for burnable material and green waste is located at the municipal pit on Littlewood Road (north off Mills Road).

Burnable material refers to waste wood products.

Green waste typically consists of tree branches and/or garden clippings.

Waste wood recycled at North Saanich disposal site is ground and transported off site to be used as a renewable energy source.

The following materials are NOT accepted as they create a safety and environmental hazard for equipment and personnel:
  •  Painted / Stained Wood
•  Wood with Creosote
Upholstered furniture •  All Metal
Plastic •  Vinyl
Asphalt Shingles
•  Glass
Carpet •  Drywall

This drop off service is available year round on the first and third Saturday and second and fourth Thursday of each month from 8:00 a.m. to noon. Please note that Green Waste dates for 2017 are not always the first and third Saturdays as they have been in the past. Review the Drop-off and Burnable Green Waste Schedule for complete dates.

Participation is limited to residents of North Saanich only (confirmation by driver’s license may be required). No commercial loads will be accepted.

The drop-off rates are $15.00 per pick-up (or utility trailer) or $7.00 per car load. Rates for larger loads are at staff discretion.

Please tarp or secure all loads.  An increasing number of vehicles are arriving with unsafe and/or unsecured loads.  This excerpt from the Motor Vehicle Act outlines the requirements to secure loads.

The District of North Saanich appreciates your cooperation in helping us continue to provide this public service.
