2013 Spring Clean-up and Hazardous Waste Days


April 29, 2013

MONCTON – The City of Moncton wishes to advise residents that Spring Clean-Up Week is May 6 to 10. Here are additional details to keep in mind when placing your items curbside. 

During the City of Moncton’s Spring Clean-Up Week, residents may set out their bulk garbage in a separate pile, on their regular garbage day. Separate trucks will collect the bulk garbage on your regular garbage day only.

Guidelines: 

  • Branches must be tied in bundles not exceeding 1 metre (3.28 feet) in length or 0.6 metre (2 feet) in any other dimension.
  • Place other yard waste (grass clippings, thatch, leaves and sod pieces) in green transparent plastic bags.
  • Regular garbage placed in blue and green transparent bags should be piled separately.
  • Large appliances (refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers) will be picked up from residences during Spring Clean-up Week only. They should be piled separately to be picked up by other equipment.
  • Construction or demolition waste will not be collected.
  • Do not set out hazardous waste materials (such as propane tanks, household cleaners, paint and paint related materials, lawn and garden chemicals, oils, and batteries and oil tanks) during Spring Clean-Up collection. Hazardous waste drop-offs are on: 

            -          Tuesday, May 28, 2 p.m. – 7 p.m. Moncton Coliseum
            -          Wednesday, May 29, 2 p.m. – 7 p.m. Crossman Community Centre-Kay Arena 
            -          Thursday, May 30, 2 p.m. – 7 p.m. Mapleton Park, Gorge Rd. parking lot

  • Vehicle parts should not be set out for collection. They should be drained of hazardous fluids and disposed of at a scrap metals dealer. Fluids can be dropped off at the Hazardous waste drop-off zones. 
  • Tires will be picked up but must be piled separately. The City strongly encourages residents to bring their tires to a tire dealership for recycling. 
  • Refrain from using solid color garbage bags, whether black, dark green or orange; their content will be sent directly to the dump site and won’t benefit from the garbage sorting program.
  • Residential waste (to a limit of one-half ton) may be dropped off, free of charge, at the Regional Service Commission # 7 (formally known as Westmorland-Albert Solid Waste Corporation), on Berry Mills Road. Their extended Spring Clean-up hours are as follows: May 13 to 17, from 4:30 to 8 p.m. and May 18, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
