Trash Facility

Big Canoe residents use a centralized trash collection system located near the North Gate for household waste and garbage, cardboard and single stream recycling for paper, plastic, etc.


Big Canoe Trash Facility provides Property Owners with five household garbage containers, including one exclusively for broken-down corrugated cardboard boxes. This service is available 24/7. The facility also collects aluminum cans, yard waste and scrap metal.


Bulk Trash Day is held quarterly on the last Saturday of January, April, July and October in the parking area behind the Trash Facility. Property Owners may dispose of larger bulky items and take advantage of other services such as paper shredding, for a small fee. Car/Truck/SUV load is $20. Trailer or UHaul load is $40.
