Eastern Regional Service Board Facility Service Alert

FACILITY SERVICE ALERT— PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT—

HARBOUR GRACE waste recovery facility will be closed today (Tuesday, Dec. 12), due to vandalism. ERSB are working to return the facility to regular operating hours. Please check their website and social media for updates.

For info and alerts, visit www.easternregionalserviceboard.com and follow ERSB on Twitter @ERSBNL and Facebook.

▪ If you have questions or comments about any of the services ERSB provide, contact them at [email protected].

Reminder: Eastern Regional Service Board’s Clear Bag Policy starts on January 1, 2024

Eastern Regional Service Board’s Clear Bag Policy starts on January 1, 2024

News Release- ERSB’s Clear Bag Policy Starts on January 1, 2024

The Eastern Regional Service Board (the Board) will officially transition to clear bags for all household garbage collected by ERSB contractors after New Year’s Day.  Starting January 1, 2024, ERSB customers will place their regular household garbage out for collection every week in clear, standard-sized plastic garbage bags.  The Board announced the change in June 2023 to give our valued customers time to adjust and would like to thank everyone who has already switched to clear bags over the past six months.

In the home, using clear bags for regular household garbage provides a visual reminder of what we are discarding.  This encourages people to be mindful of their waste generation, consumption habits, and potentially, inspire them to recycle more and reduce wastage.  Using clear bags will make sorting garbage and recycling more efficient.  Clear bags also help ensure that household hazardous waste such as batteries are diverted from going to the landfill.  Clear bags protect collectors by allowing them quickly to identify the contents of a bag, minimizing the risk of coming into contact with sharp objects and other unsafe contents.

Municipalities across Canada using clear bags have reported an increase in how many recyclables are diverted from the garbage once clear bags were introduced.  Clear bags were introduced in Central Newfoundland in 2015, Western Newfoundland and Mount Pearl in 2017, and St. John’s in 2022.

Each household may use one privacy bag every week.  As always, there is no limit on the number of blue bags customers can place curbside on any scheduled recycling day.

Beginning on January 1, 2024, customers will place their discards curbside in this matter:
Clear bags (standard sized, coulourless, see-through) for all weekly household garbage.
Opague (non-see through) garbage bag of any colour for weekly privacy garbage.
Blue Bags (unlimited number) for recycling materials only on scheduled recycling days.

As the weather gets colder, rodent control and rat proofing is important for households and businesses

Whether you own property or rent, live or work in the Town of Carbonear, everyone has a role in rat prevention. Rat proofing your home and property is the most important factor to prevent and control these pests.
Rats are pests that are found year round. They live outdoors and then migrate inside when cool weather approaches. They are found around buildings, in gardens and near garbage or composters.
For information and tips on how to help prevent and control rodent infestation please visit the Government of Canada website.

Town of Carbonear marks Saturday, September 30, 2023 as National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Office will be closed on Monday, October 2, 2023.

The Town of Carbonear marks Saturday, September 30, 2023 as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. In 2021, the Government of Canada passed legislation designating September 30 a federal statutory holiday to recognize the history and legacy of residential schools in Canada and in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action #80.

September 30th provides all Canadians with an opportunity to recognize, remember,  reflect, and honor the tragic history and stories of survivors, families and communities.

The Town of Carbonear building at 256 Water Street will be illuminated with orange light, as a symbol of commemoration.

In addition, in observance of the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, the Town Office will be closed on Monday, October 2, 2023 and will re-open on Tuesday, October 3, 2023 at 8:30 a.m.

It’s Waste Wednesday!

It’s Waste Wednesday!

Did you know……
Eastern Regional Service Board provides weekly collection for regular household garbage and bi-weekly
collection of recyclables to many communities in eastern Newfoundland including the Town of Carbonear.
The Eastern Regional Service Board will transition to clear bags beginning January 1, 2024.
Customers will place their regular household waste out for collection in clear, see-through garbage bags. Every household will have the option to use one privacy bag each week. Clear bags have been in use in Central Newfoundland since 2015, Western Newfoundland and Mount Pearl since 2017, and St. John’s since 2022.
Studies show that using clear bags encourages proper sorting of materials, keeping recyclable items out of the garbage. This reduces the amount of waste going to landfill.

Using clear bags also helps protect the collectors and staff, allowing them to see and avoid any sharp or dangerous objects in the bag.
