- At the Landfill & Transfer stations household recyclables can go together except glass, which must be separated. Why? Because currently glass has a poor recycling market at the moment so we actually crush it and use it for road building, as it is a superior product for this.
- If you are enrolled in the curbside garbage and recycling pickup, all accepted recyclables can go together, including glass and would then be sorted at their depot.
- No plastic bags required! Just empty your recycling bags into the bin and reuse your bags. We have signs up at the landfill and all transfer stations as well as a barrel for you to put your single use plastic bag in once the recycling is emptied from it.

New Household Hazardous Waste Depot
The RM of St. Clements landfill is excited to offer our residents a safe disposal of their residential household hazardous waste at our new HHW Depot. This new, free service began operating June 1, 2021 at the Libau landfill.
We’ve listened to our residents request for a location within the Municipality to be able to bring items such as paint cans, pesticides, corrosives and more.
In addition to our used oil and used oil materials collection that we currently offer, the HHW program will allow us to collect the following types of waste at the Libau Landfill:
- Compressed gases
- Flammable liquids
- Fluorescent lighting tubes & compact fluorescents (CFL)
- Paint products (such as paint cans)
- Toxic materials
For the full downloadable detailed list of products that are accepted and products that are not, click here.
IMPORTANT: All HHW and paint products must be clearly labelled in their original container to protect the health and safety of those handling the materials.
The stewardship partner for the HHW Depot is ProductCare, which operates in response to the provincial HHW and Prescribed Material Stewardship Regulation.
