Railway Ties?

Does anyone know where you can dispose of railway ties in Ontario? We purchased a house and they are on the property. Are there any environmental companies that will pick them up?

Most trash companies also recycle. Waste Management is one that I believe operates in Ontario.

Have you called whomever takes away your regular trash? How about the local community government?

RE: Railway Ties?

Those things can be valuable. Try putting them on craigslist for $8-10 each.

"Most trash companies also recycle."

Railroad ties old enough will have creosote treatment and are not recyclable.

See if you can sell them to someone.

RE: Railway Ties?

Thanks for your comments. We found a local independent garbage site that would take them for a fee.
