Garbage and Compost Collection

Changes to garbage collection schedules for June 30 – July 1, Canada Day

City of Saint John solid waste customers are advised of the following changes to regular collection schedule for Tuesday, June 30 and Wednesday, July 1.

Tuesday, June 30

Regular Tuesday nighttime collection moves to Monday nighttime collection (June 29).

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.

Wednesday, July 1

Regular Wednesday daytime collection moves to Thursday evening/nighttime collection (July 2).

Customers who normally place their garbage curbside at 7:30 a.m. for regular daytime collection are asked to place their garbage and compost curbside no later than 3:00 p.m. on Thursday afternoon.

Reminder: 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.

The Municipal Operations and Saint John Water Customer Service line operates 24/7 by calling 658-4455.
