Sechelt Landfill

The Sechelt Landfill no longer accepts any type of wood waste for recycling at its facility. Wood waste is accepted instead at Salish Soils for collection and recycling at 5646 Schetxwen Road. Questions about access and wood waste processing can be directed to Salish Soils at 604-885-5383. More details can be found at and by contacting Salish Soils.

This change will reduce emissions since the processing and recycling of wood waste will remain on the Sunshine Coast instead of shipping off-coast. Information about changes and the two wood categories can be found here.

The Sechelt Landfill accepts debit and credit card only.

The Sechelt Landfill site is located on Dusty Road off of Sechelt Inlet Road, near the Village of Sechelt.
