What to Do with Non-Recyclable Items

Although Ellice Recycle accepts many items that are not commonly (or easily) recycled, there are a few that we cannot accept. This is because of national safety standards for our employees and to ensure the items are properly destroyed or recycled. If you need to dispose of one or more non-recyclable items, we have included the right ways to get rid of them…

  • Household Hazardous Waste: While all of Ellice Recycle’s employees are trained to safely handle many hazardous materials, some household hazardous waste (HHW) materials are far too dangerous and risky to their health and safety, and we cannot accept them. Some unacceptable materials include such as mercury, asbestos, unknown chemicals, radioactive waste, PCB’s, biomedical waste, and leaky containers of pesticides, solvents, or gasoline. We can provide testing and abatement kits and other options for asbestos and mercury disposal. Mercury can also be taken to the Hartland Recycling Depot.
  • Concrete, Gravel & Other Rubble Substances: Recycling materials such as rock, rubble, brick, asphalt, concrete, gravel, terracotta, soil, and so on requires heavy equipment that is designed to handle these items. Unfortunately, Ellice Recycle cannot accept these materials, since we do not have the appropriate equipment. However, the Victoria Materials Depot can accept them. Note: We can accept sod at our David Street facility, and all of the above rubble materials can be put in specialized bins for Ellice to haul for you – we just cannot accept them for drop-off.
  • Vehicle Fluids: We do not accept vehicle fluids such as motor oil, antifreeze, brake fluid, or transmission fluid, but your neighbourhood garage will! Since garages handle and dispose of these materials correctly on a daily basis, we recommend that you allow them to deal with any vehicle fluid waste (sometimes this disposal is included in your normal vehicle maintenance or repair service).

For more information about materials that are not recyclable at Ellice, please contact the Capital Regional District at their hotline: 250-360-3030. Contact Ellice Recycle about non-recyclable materials as well as the items we do accept for recycling drop-off.
