Bulk Waste Disposal


Residents in our collection areas have access to both drop-off and curbside collection services for disposal of bulk waste.

Bulk Waste Curbside Collection Days

Bulk waste collection begins on the designated day for your area. It may take a number of days for all bulk waste items to be removed from all residences. For example, furniture may be collected one day and metals on the next day.

Bulk collection Guidelines:

  • Place items at your own curb by 7 a.m. on your designated bulk waste collection day. Only your household’s items should be at the curb.
  • Place bulk items next to your garbage box or where waste is normally placed for weekly collection.
  • Separate metal items from other bulk waste (such as furniture).
  • Do not stack items.
  • All items must be bagged or bundled and tied. Scattered or loose items will not be collected.
  • Individual items must not exceed a maximum of 22 kg (50 lb).
  • A maximum of 226 kg (500 lbs) or one pick-up load (whichever is less) will be collected from each household.

Bulk items remaining curbside after collection is complete could result in a penalty. The cost of returning to remove the material and ensure its proper disposal will be charged to the property owner.

Illegal Dumping is a crime

Illegal dumping is a serious and unnecessary problem in Newfoundland and Labrador that poses a threat to the environment and our community.
