Landfill Special Waste Acceptance Hours

The City of Regina Landfill accepts asbestos and other special waste material during the hours of 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., Tuesday to Friday, weather permitting, unless otherwise arranged with the Landfill Operations staff.

During Special Waste Delivery/Disposal

Asbestos and other special waste materials must be secured and handled in accordance with all applicable current regulations and policies.

The customer is responsible for the transportation and offloading of the special waste. The unloading of asbestos shall only take place in the presence and under the direction of a Landfill Operator to ensure that no loose asbestos or broken bags are unloaded and no airborne particulate are generated.

If the wind speed is greater than 20 km/hr and/or other inclement weather conditions exist, the Landfill Operations staff has the right to refuse delivery due to unsafe disposal conditions. Please follow all instructions of the Landfill Operations staff while disposing of special waste.

Analytical Requirements

No analytical information is required for asbestos or animal carcasses. Review further information on analytical requirements.

Other Special Waste Information

An approved Special Waste Disposal Permit does not meet the requirements for a shipping manifest in accordance with the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations. Where required, by provincial or federal legislation, manifests and shipping documents must be completed separately.
