Household Hazardous Waste Events
2019 Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events
Eastern Regional Service Board encourages residents of the eastern region to gather their household hazardous waste (HHW) material in preparation for local HHW collection events occuring in September. Please note these HHW events do not accept waste from commercial operators.
Proper disposal of HHW will help prevent hazardous chemicals from products that are poisonous, corrosive, flammable or stored in pressurized containers from contaminating the soil, water, and atmosphere around us. For a list of items generally accepted at the HHW collection events, please click HERE.
The HHW drop off events will take place on September 7 (9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.) at the following locations respectively:
Wabana - Fire Hall
Fermeuse - Fire Hall
St. Shott's - Fire Hall
Trepassey - Fire Hall
Riverhead - Fire Hall
Admiral's Beach - Fire Hall
Colinet - Fire Hall
The Houshold Hazardous Waste Facility at Robin Hood Bay is open to residents of the Eastern Region for HHW drop-off every Wednesday and Saturday from 8:00am to 4:00pm.
Temporary Winter Residential Waste Drop Off Locations
Eastern Regional Service Board (Eastern Waste Management) has established temporary winter residential waste drop off locations in some areas for the period of Tuesday, January 1 to Friday, March 1, 2019. These temporary sites are required where roads may become periodically inaccessible throughout the winter. Contractors working on behalf of the Board have been advised to perform curbside waste collection where and when possible (i.e.: if road conditions permit); however, property owners may utilize the winter residential waste drop off locations any time to dispose of their waste.
Property owners are advised 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.

Eastern Regional Service Board thanks its clients for their cooperation.
