Collection Updates

Bulk Collection cancelled until further notice

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Eastern Regional Service Board is taking measures to proactively help prevent the spread of the virus. Following advice from public health officials, we will be enacting solutions for our contractors to increase social distancing.

All Bulk Garbage Collections scheduled by ERSB are cancelled until further notice. This difficult decision has been made to help protect our contractors and ensure proper social distancing requirements are met.

We will continue to support all communities under our jurisdiction so we can continue to establish a waste management system that is affordable and that provides a tremendous service to all our communities.
