2014 Spring Clean-up and Hazardous Waste Days


April 25, 2014

MONCTON – The City of Moncton wishes to advise residents that Spring Clean-Up Week is May 5 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. Regular garbage should continue to be put in blue or green bags only. 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 and leaves) 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 such as drywall, insulation, roofing, shingles and lumber will not be collected.

• Do not set out hazardous waste materials (such as propane tanks, household cleaners, computer monitors, paint and paint related materials, lawn and garden chemicals, oils, and batteries and oil tanks) during Spring Clean-Up collection. Hazardous waste can be dropped off, free of charge, at RecycleSENB or at the following locations:

- Tuesday, April 29, 2 p.m. – 7 p.m. Moncton Coliseum
- Wednesday, April 30, 2 p.m. – 7 p.m. Crossman Community Centre-Kay Arena
- Thursday, May 1st, 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 RecycleSENB facilities, on Berry Mills Road during Spring Clean-up days, May 12 to 16 from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and May 17 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
