Changes to garbage collection schedules for Labour Day, September 7

31-Aug-2020

City of Saint John solid waste customers are advised of the following changes to regular collection schedule for Monday, September 7 and potential delays on Tuesday, September 8, 2020.

Monday, September 7 (Labour Day)

Regular Monday daytime collection moves to Monday nighttime collection.

Customers are asked to have their garbage and compost curbside no earlier than 6:00 p.m. and no later than 9:00 p.m.

Please note that garbage and compost pick-up may be delayed to as late as Tuesday (September 8) night due to modifications to resources, routes and assignments.

Tuesday, September 8

On Tuesday, solid waste and compost should be placed at the curb at the normal time (no earlier than 10 p.m. before the scheduled day, and by 7:30 a.m. on the scheduled day).  However, due to modifications to resources, routes and assignments, garbage and compost pick-up may be delayed to as late as Wednesday (September 9) morning.

Reminder: Please use proper curbside placement of garbage and compost carts

Customers are reminded to place their compost carts with the lid opening towards the street and the wheels toward your home to support automated collection technology. Thanks to this technology, there is no longer a need to place objects at the bottom of carts to elevate bags for garbage collection crews. All contents inside compost and garbage carts will be disposed.

City crews appreciate the efforts of customers to facilitate the efficient collection of garbage and compost.
