Trash Facility

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

Trash Disposal

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

Bulk Trash Day

Bulk Trash Day is held quarterly on the last Saturday of January, April, July and October in the Maintenance Department parking lot behind the Trash Facility. Property Owners can dispose of larger bulky items for free and take advantage of other services, such as paper shredding, for a nominal fee.
