The District of Port Hardy provides residential garbage and recycling pickup and disposal services via its contractor, Fox’s Disposal Ltd. Please note that arrangements for garbage and recycling services for multi-family residential developments are made directly by the owners of these developments. This latter arrangement also applies to non-residential developments.

The following materials will not be picked up:

  • Hazardous waste (including asbestos)
  • Batteries
  • Tires
  • Appliances
  • Cardboard (put out with you recyclables…not garbage)
  • Flammable waste (including grease)
  • Contaminated soil
  • Scrap metal
  • Construction waste


These and other materials may be accepted at the Fox’s Disposal Ltd. transfer station site at 5990 Steel Road in Port Hardy (250-949-6306), the Port Hardy Return-It Centre at 9300 Trustee Road in Port Hardy (250-949-7700), or the 7 -Mile Landfill & Recycling Facility on Highway No. 19 (250-949-1681). Please call these facilities first to ensure they will accept the materials you wish to bring to them.
