2021 Waste Collection Schedule:

 


Recycling:

Recycling collection will take place every second week on your scheduled garbage route. We require two streams of recycling to be placed in clear blue bags. Below is the information on what to include and how to separate “paper products” and “containers.”

Cardboard can be put in a tied up blue bag or can be broken down and placed in bundles at the curb. If bundled it must measure no more than 2ft by 2ft by 1ft. DO NOT bundle cardboard and then put it in a blue bag; either bundle it or bag it.


Compost:

Tumbler style compost bins are sold out for the 2021 summer season! Please check back in Spring 2022 for our next order of compost bins to be available for purchase from the town. Thank you for your understanding! 

Composting is a great way to cut down on your waste, while also creating a rich and natural fertilizer for your garden. To learn more about the benefits of backyard composting, visit the Rethink Waste NL website, below:


Bulk Garbage:

Bulk garbage collection service is available by appointment from May to November and is on a first come first serve basis.
