Garbage Must be Covered Beginning April 1

Garbage covered in net and secured in bins.

Residents are reminded that garbage put out at the curb for collection must be completely covered from April 1 through November 30. Acceptable covers include metal or plastic containers with a lid, a net, or a blanket.

Garbage is not permitted at the curb before 6 a.m. on your scheduled collection day. This measure is in place to reduce the amount of litter on streets, parks and open spaces.

For further information the Access St. John’s Call Centre is available to residents 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by calling 311 or 709-754-CITY (2489) or online at
