NANAIMO’S RECYCLING RESOURCE

Recycling is in our roots. We started out as Nanaimo’s wood waste and asphalt shingle disposal site and now we’re proud to be able to offer a recycling solution for all types of waste.

Milner Recycling is our recycling facility where we proudly accept all non-hazardous waste from residential and commercial customers as well as the local government. Our sorting team and the equipment we operate on-site enable us to divert almost all of the waste recycling material that we accept here from entering the landfill.

HAZARDOUS MATERIALS MANAGEMENT

Hazardous materials are found commonly in renovations or demolitions and dealing with these materials can be complicated or difficult to understand due to strict regulations and safety requirements. We make the process easy by offering complete removal services or controlled waste disposal bins to meet your needs. We offer safe and easy removal of hazardous waste including asbestos, lead, mould and vermiculite. We’re familiar with all WorkSafeBC procedures and we’re certified to transport dangerous goods for convenient disposal.
