The Town of Strathmore has announced that the recycling facility has relocated to 103 Huxted Way. The new entrance is south of where the old entrance used to be. 

Strathmore's residential recycling facility is operated by Blu Plant Recycling.  

As of January 2024, the facility will be open weekly from Tuesday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed on Sundays, Mondays, and all other stat holidays.

“Please be courteous and respectful to others. All items must be placed in designated areas as directed. The facility is intended for the use of Strathmore residents and not commercial users. Construction, demolition, and industrial or commercial waste generators must make arrangements for disposal,” The Town said on their website.

Acceptable items include:

  • Boxboard.
  • Metal.
  • Plastic.
  • Cardboard.
  • Mixed paper.
  • Tin cans.
  • Glass.
  • Newsprint.
  • Wood.
  • E-waste such as monitors, computers, power and air tools, toys and games, lawn and garden tools, small appliances, and televisions.
  • Household hazardous waste such as aerosol cans, cleaners, paint, automotive fluid, batteries, and pesticides.
  • Take it or leave it items, which are gently used and workable items that allow others to take and utilize what they need.

Unacceptable items include:

  • Bikes.
  • Commercial and industrial waste.
  • Furniture.
  • Large home appliances.
  • Tires.
  • Car seats.
  • Fluorescent bulbs.
  • Home renovation materials.
  • Mattresses.
  • Wood pallets.

If you need to dispose of one of the unacceptable items listed above, residents can utilize the Heavy Item Garbage (HIG) program in April and September, visit a local landfill, or work with the retailers of each product on appropriate disposal.

Acceptable and unacceptable items are subject to change based on the discretion of the town.

As a reminder, the Town of Strathmore is not responsible for curbside recycling collection (blue carts). This service is provided by private contractors.
