Backyard Compost Bins

Did you know that by composting you can reduce your household waste significantly since 30% of household waste is organic?  By composting in our own backyards we create a natural environment where decomposer organisms such as bacteria, insects, worms and fungi can break down organic waste and convert it into nutrient-rich compost.

Used Tire Recycling Program

Consumers can leave their used tires, at no cost, with a tire retailer upon the purchase of new tires. However, they can also be returned to a tire retailer at a later date in manageable quantities (4-5 tires) during the retailer’s normal business hours.

Tires that are accepted include passenger tires, light truck tires, commercial truck tires and motorcycle tires.  Used tires must be in whole form, free of mud, debris and rims must be removed prior to returning to a tire retailer.

Electronic Products Recycling Program

Residents and businesses can recycle their old electronics and help divert potentially hazardous materials from the landfill by dropping off their unwanted electronics to a drop off centre located throughout the province.

Need to learn more about this program?  Please visit the Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA) website: www.recyclemyelectronics.ca/nl/ to find out the nearest recycling drop off centre and what electronics are accepted in the program.

Grasscycling

Residents can cut lawns more frequently thereby eliminating the need to rake up the clippings.  Leaving clippings on the lawn provides excellent nutrients for the lawn.

Grass clippings can be included with regular waste on scheduled days. These bags will be included in the ten (10) bag limit of waste allowed per week.  Each bag shall not weigh more than 40 lbs.
