Waste Transfer Site

Niverville Council recognizes that there may be occasions when residents have additional household waste that they would like to personally remove. A waste transfer site is located approximately one kilometre north on Sixth Avenue North (Bristal Hauling). Current hours and drop-off fees can be found here.

Hazardous Waste Disposal

**Please note: Hazardous and industrial waste (including cooking oil) are not acceptable materials in either the waste or recycling carts.

The City of Steinbach has opened a permanent hazardous waste facility at the Landfill (104 Hanover Road E) which permits Niverville and area residents to drop off residential quantities of hazardous waste year-round. (Note: Commercial businesses will be turned away.) All hazardous material brought to the site must be in sealed, original, clearly labeled containers. (i.e. NO “mystery” liquids in ice cream pails). See full details HERE.

Hours of Operation can be found HERE.
