Winter Residential Waste Drop off Locations

Eastern Regional Service Board (Eastern Waste Management) has established winter residential waste drop off locations in some areas for the period of January 1 to March 1, 2018. These sites are required whereas roads may become periodically inaccessible throughout the winter. Contractors have been advised to perform curbside collection where and when possible (i.e.: if road conditions permits); however, property owners may utilize the winter residential waste drop off locations anytime to dispose of their residential waste. Property owners are also reminded that these drop off locations are NOT bulk garbage drop-offs. Bulk waste must be discarded during one of the bulk waste-specific collection days as indicated on the Collection Schedule for the area. Thank you for your cooperation. Please click FIND YOUR REGION to determine if this notice affects your individual collection area. 

New Harbour 2018 Collection Day Update

Please note that the collection day originally communicated in the 2018 Guidebook for the community of New Harbour, Trinity Bay was incorrect. The correct collection day for 2018 is Wednesday of each week. Eastern Waste Management apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. A new collection calendar can be downloaded below.
