Notice of Service - Waste, Recycling and Bulk Collection

Highway 91; West of intersection of Highway 91 and 92 to South East Placentia Road.

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 May 2018 ERSB will be providing information to the property owners in the above listed areas regarding waste collection and recycling collection. Waste and recycling collection will start the first week in July. A guidebook will be delivered to each property which contains the exact dates of waste and recycling collection, bulk waste pick up and other important pieces of information. The  annual fee for service is $180 per property, however, since collection is starting the first week of July 2018 the fee for service will be prorated representing 26 weeks of service at $90.74.

There will be people canvassing the area. They will be carrying photo ID with the ERSB logo and an information package with details specific to your area. We ask that you please provide them with the property owners’ name and address. If no one is present at the time of our visit an information package will be left on the door, after which we will consider the property owner notified of the service.
Should you wish to contact us in advance and provide your name and mailing address please contact 709.579.7960. Everyone has a role to play in keeping our province clean and beautiful. At the Eastern Regional Service Board we’re committed to delivering consistent, sustainable waste management services to thousands of people in eastern Newfoundland. Visit our website at for details.
