Recycling reminders

  • Regular waste collection will continue to be collected each week.
  • Paper and containers must be separated and placed in clear blue bags.
  • Recycling must be placed roadside every other week, on the scheduled day, not earlier than 6:00 am, not later than 7:00 am.
  • Each bag must weigh less than 40 pounds.
  • Rinse your food containers before recycling them.
  • Containers must be free of liquids.
  • Nothing sharp or dangerous should protrude from the bags.
  • Do not place bags of recycling on snow banks, as it can be difficult for collectors to reach.

Helpful tips on how to stay green

  • Post your recycling calendar on your fridge, or some other place for easy reference.
  • Ensure your recycling containers/bags are as easy to access.
  • Recycling bags do not have to be covered, but may need to be on windy days.
  • Who wants a pile of shopping bags? As soon as you get the groceries put away in your cupboard, take your reusable shopping bags directly back out to your car. Then you know you won’t forget them next time you shop!
  • Composting is a great way to reduce waste and the resulting compost will enrich soil for your gardens and flower beds. Visit http://www.mmsb.nl.ca for more information.
  • Where Conception Bay South programs are not available, taking waste to Robin Hood Bay is a vital part of keeping Conception Bay South clean and green.
  • Reducing our waste is important. Reduce, reuse and recycle!
