Waste Recovery Facilities
Two Waste Recovery Facilities (WRF) are located on the Southern Shore: (1) the former Bay Bulls Landfill site; and, (2) the former Renews-Cappahayden Landfill site. The WRF sites accept bulk household waste, such as appliances, furniture, mattresses, hot water tanks, electronics, metals, propane tanks, car and truck tires (rims removed), ATV and motorcycle tires, personal construction and demolition material, shingles, brush, etc. EWM will not accept anything that is recyclable or materials that decompose, including cardboard, clothing, food items, leaves, grass clippings, ash, or fish nets.
Hours of Operation
Tuesday and Thursday, 12:00PM to 4:00PM*, and Saturday, 8:00AM to 4:00PM*, excluding holidays.
*Note: Gates will close 15 minutes before the facility closes.
Temporary Winter Drop Off Locations
Eastern Regional Service Board (Eastern Waste Management) has established temporary winter residential waste drop off locations in your area for the period of Tuesday, January 1 to Friday, March 1, 2019. The temporary site is 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 location 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.
