Update from Eastern Regional Service Board on Recycling Collection and Waste Recovery Facilities

Recycling: Recycling Collection is suspended for another 2 weeks.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the return to Alert Level 5, the Eastern Regional Service Board is taking measures to proactively help prevent the spread of the virus. The ERSB will be enacting solutions for our contractors to increase social distancing.
All recycling in the Eastern Region will be suspended for two weeks. The provision of services will be reviewed in two weeks. This difficult decision has been made to ensure weekly garbage collection is maintained, to help protect our contractors, and to help ensure proper social distancing requirements are met.

Waste Recovery Facilities:
Waste Recovery Facilities will remain closed until further notice.

To reduce the risk of exposing staff and residents to the virus, we have made the decision to close Waste Recovery Facilities until further notice. This applies to the Bay Bulls, Bell Island, Cavendish, Old Perlican, Harbour Grace, Placentia, Renews-Cappahayden, St. Joseph’s, Sunnyside, Clarenville and Whitbourne Waste Recovery Facilities.
