Bike Sales & Donations at Recycle Depot


$20.00 $10.00

The City does not inspect the bikes recovered nor have any knowledge of, or warrants the condition the bikes are in. Therefore, the bikes are sold “as is” with no liability on the part of the City. Furthermore, the purchaser, by paying the nominal fee, waives any rights or claims against the City and becomes solely responsible.

The bike program is offered so residents may enjoy bikes at an affordable cost. Resale for profit is not the intent of the program and is not permitted. Staff reserve the right to refuse sales at their discretion.

Waste & Recycling Tips

  • Write your address on your cart to quickly recognize it if it blows away!
  • Branches less than 1 metre long and 1.5 cm wide can go in your green cart. Take large branches and stumps and any excess leaves and grass to the Transfer Site (fees apply)
  • Electric power tools accepted at the Recycle depot, NO gas powered lawn/garden tools, NO units with freon (dispose of at transfer site)
  • Garden hoses & tools, brooms, broken flowerpots and outdoor toys (sport balls, kiddie pools, sand box toys, etc.) are garbage
  • Only fill your green cart half full with soil/sod, if it is too heavy it will not be collected
  • Please pre-sort your material prior to arriving at the Recycle Depot to allow for a quick and easy visit
    • Rain barrels need to be cut in half prior to drop off at Recycle Depot
