The acceptable methods of disposal of demolition debris are as follows:

  • Inert materials including rocks, sand, mud, slurry, broken concrete, glass and rubble may be buried on site after removal of all organic or potentially hazardous materials.
  • All organic materials such as lumber should be burned on site and buried. Prior to conducting a controlled burn, the appropriate fire protection service must be notified.
  • All potentially hazardous materials including asphalt shingles must be removed and taken to the landfill.
  • All buried debris shall be covered by a minimum of 24 inches of soil. 

Prior to burying any demolition debris, the applicant must notify the Planning Department to arrange for an inspection of the premises. Once the debris has been properly disposed of and the site has been restored to a satisfactory condition, the sum deposited, or portion thereof, will be refunded.

A building may not be demolished or removed from a property until the R.M. is satisfied that there are no debts or taxes in arrears or taxes outstanding with respect to the building or land on which the building is situated. For more information on current or outstanding taxes please contact the R.M. Tax Assessor.
