Waste, Recycling and Bulk Collection

The Eastern Regional Service Board (ERSB) has been established by the Province of Newfoundland & Labrador to develop and implement modern waste management practices in the eastern region. 

Starting in November 2018 ERSB will be providing information to the property owners in the above listed area regarding waste collection and recycling collection. Waste and recycling collection will start January 2, 2019.
