Waste Management

The Town of Whitewood is a part of the Redcoat Waste Authority who contract Loraas Disposal to collect waste and recycling within town.  You may set your garbage and recycling bin outside for pick up on regularly schedule days or take your garbage out to the landfill site. Garbage and recycling pickup is on alternate Wednesdays. Please see below for the pickup schedule. Each bin must be set in front of your property by 7am on collection day. If your garbage/recycling is missed, please put it away until the next pickup day.

The Town of Whitewood now has single-stream recycling for all residences.  Your blue bin can accept paper and cardboard, aluminum and tin, plastic with logos 1 through 7, and all milk containers.  Items NOT allowed in the blue bin includes glass, household garbage, compostable materials, waxed paper products, shredded paper, and styrofoam.

Loraas Disposal’s website has a complete guide to single stream recycling.
