Garbage and Recycling

Spring Clean Up

On June 5th 2017, the Town will hold its spring cleanup of bulk household items and metals. Items must be placed on the road shoulder by 8:00 am. There will be two trucks running simultaneously that will be making only one pass for collection.

Please note that items NOT accepted are: vehicular parts, commercial, renovation and construction materials, propane tanks and/or hazardous materials.

Garbage Collection and Recycling

Recycling reminder that Gift Bags/Gift Wrap are NOT recyclable material and should be disposed of in the regular garbage.   


Residents are advised that there are no scheduled changes to the Garbage and Recycling collection over the Christmas holidays.  If there is a storm cancellation or delay, an announcement will be posted on our website, announced via radio and via social media.

Regular garbage collection is scheduled as follows:

  • Logy Bay – Tuesday
  • Middle Cove – Thursday
  • Outer Cove – Thursday

A reminder that garbage must be placed on the road right-of-way and containers cleared of snow before 8:00 am on collection day. In order to keep our community clean all residents are asked to ensure that your garbage placed by the roadside is either placed in covered containers or garbage boxes or covered with material/netting to prevent birds and rodents from accessing the garbage. Failure to do so will result in Council taking further action. The maximum number of bags per week, per household is ten.

Residents of the Greater Avalon Region can now dispose of their household hazardous waste on a regular basis at the new Robin Hood Bay Regional Waste Management Facility. For a schedule of available times, please visit Greater Avalon Regional Waste Management Facility.

Curbside Recycling 2017

Recycling will be picked up bi-weekly on the same day as garbage pickup and must be placed curbside by 8:00 am on collection day. Garbage and recycling pickup will occur at different times during the day.

Important Notice: Recycling Bags that are contaminated – meaning that one of the following items: glass, plastic bags/wrap, aerosol and paint cans, syringes, Styrofoam, diapers, kitty litter, drink/coffee cups, gift wrapping paper is placed in the bag with other recyclables, means the bag will not be picked up from the curbside and will be marked contaminated. You need to remove the contaminated material and place it with your regular garbage and then place the recycling bag back on the curbside for your next regular pick up day.

Donate Your Recyclable Beverage Containers

There is a recycling shed located behind the Town Hall. All residents are encouraged to make use of this facility. It is available for use 24/7. The Recycling Shed and Program are run in conjunction with St. Francis of Assisi School. Through the MMSB, the school receives double the normal refund while our Town saves money in tippage fees. Beverage containers on which you paid a deposit are eligible for recycling. At present, we are unable to accept paper and cardboard for recycling.
