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.
Wood chips are available to the public at some of the sites for pick up (free of charge). Supply is limited and will vary by site. Please check with the local Site Attendant for more information.
This site does not accept commercial material or waste, including materials from contractors or businesses. Vehicles having any commercial signage will be refused entry. Commercial waste can be brought to Robin Hood Bay, or the Regional Transfer Station in Clarenville (with a valid commercial permit). The permit application form can be found HERE.
