Temporary Winter Residential Waste Drop Off Locations

Eastern Regional Service Board (Eastern Waste Management) has established temporary winter residential waste drop off locations in some areas for the period of Tuesday, January 1 to Friday, March 1, 2019. These temporary sites are 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 locations 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.

Click FIND YOUR REGION to determine if this notice affects your individual collection area and to see where the drop off is located.

Eastern Regional Service Board thanks its clients for their cooperation.
