Queen Elizabeth II passed away this afternoon at Balmoral Castle in Scotland at the age of 96

Queen Elizabeth II passed away this afternoon at Balmoral Castle in Scotland at the age of 96.
For many, Queen Elizabeth II has been the only Monarch we have known. Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-reigning British Monarch and the longest-serving female head of state in history.
We reflect on her passing and her decades of dedication and service in her unprecedented 70 year reign as Monarch of the Commonwealth.
We offer condolences to the Royal Family.

Bulk Waste Collection Days:

Bulk Waste Curbside Collection Days

Bulk waste collection begins on the designated day for your area. It may take a number of days for all bulk waste items to be removed from all residences. For example, furniture may be collected one day and metals on the next day.

September 19, 2022: Carbonear (east of, & including, Bemisters Hill)

October 3, 2022: Carbonear (west of Bemisters Hill to Pondside Road & sideroads off Pondside Road)

October 17, 2022: Carbonear (south of, & including, Forest Road, London Road)

Bulk collection Guidelines:

  • Place items at your own curb by 7 a.m. on your designated bulk waste collection day. Only your household’s items should be at the curb.
  • Place bulk items next to your garbage box or where waste is normally placed for weekly collection.
  • Separate metal items from other bulk waste (such as furniture).
  • Do not stack items.
  • Waste must be accessible and boxes free of snow / debris
  • All items must be bagged or bundled and tied. Scattered or loose items will not be collected.
  • Individual items must not exceed a maximum of 22 kg (50 lb).
  • A maximum of 226 kg (500 lbs) or one pick-up load (whichever is less) will be collected from each household.
