Temporary Seasonal Waste Drop-off Locations

Eastern Waste Management will be providing temporary seasonal waste drop-off locations in some areas throughout the Eastern Region during the winter months. These sites are required whereas roads may soon become inaccessible for contractors on account of the weather. Contractors have been advised to perform curbside collection where and when possible (if weather permits); however, property owners are encouraged to utilize the temporary waste drop-off sites until further notice. Residents are also reminded that these temporary sites are NOT bulk-garbage drop-offs. Bulk waste must be discarded during one of the bulk waste-specific collection days on the calendar in your area. Thank you for your cooperation. Please click CHOOSE YOUR REGION above to see if this affects your area. 

New Harbour 2018 Collection Day Update

Please note that the collection day originally communicated in the 2018 Guidebook for the community of New Harbour, Trinity Bay was incorrect. The correct collection day for 2018 is Wednesday of each week. Eastern Waste Management apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. A new collection calendar can be downloaded below.
