Curbside Recycling

The Town of Bruderheim offers a curbside 'Blue Bag' program as part of its dedication to the environment.  Residents are encouraged to recycle paper products, bottles, cans, plastic containers, cardboard, boxboard, tin cans and glass jars by bagging them in blue bags and putting them in the recycle roll cart.



Battery Recycling 

You can now drop off household batteries at the Bruderheim Town Office to be recycled. No large batteries, such as car batteries, please.



Cell Phone Recycling

Bruderheim Town Office is proud to be a "Recycle My Cell" drop off location! Bring your old cell phones in to 5017 Queen Street and help keep cell phones out of landfills!



Compost Area:

In addition to our recycling program, we also offer a community compost pile, located north of the campground. Access through the campground entrance off of 52nd Ave. Grass clippings, leaves and branches ONLY please. No weeds, food scraps or garbage.

Please note: There are separate piles for the grass/leaves and the branches. Branches should be 1 inch in diameter or less - anything larger should be taken to the landfill.


Community Compost



All items deemed too large to be picked up during regular garbage pick-up can be taken to the St. Michael Landfill.

For hours of operation or other inquiries, please see the St. Michael Landfill website or call them at 780.702.9880.

Please ensure all loads are tarped or secured while transporting waste to the landfill.
