Waste Collection Schedule
In an effort to provide quality services to residents, the City of Moncton is committed to a thorough and effective waste collection schedule. Waste collection takes place on different days according to residential area. Waste should be put at the curb on the evening prior to the day designated for your location between 7 p.m. and midnight, as pick-up is done in the early morning hours. (For example, if your waste collection day is Monday, waste should be put at the curb Sunday evening.) Some residential areas have daytime pick-up and waste should be put at the curb by 8 a.m. on your garbage day.
Please consult the Solid Waste Collection Zones map to find out when waste collection takes place in your area.

Holiday Waste Collection
During the statutory holidays listed below, residents may place their household waste at the curb on their regular collection night. Please note there may be changes to the collection schedule for Christmas and New Year’s Day depending on what day of the week they occur.
Citizens will be notified of the Christmas and New Year’s Day waste collection schedule well in advance of the holidays with instructions being offered through several communications venues, including:
- News section on the city’s website
- Newspaper ads
- Press releases
- Public service announcements
- Resurgo (citizens’ newsletter)
Hazardous waste should never be disposed of with regular household waste, unless the containers are completely empty, as they can cause harm to people and to the environment. This includes used batteries, leftover pesticides, or cleaning products. It is also important not to throw these products down drains or into storm drains.
Residents can bring their hazardous waste products free of charge to RecycleSENB on Berry Mills Road every Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and every Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. This applies to residential hazardous waste only.
View RecycleSENB list of hazardous waste products to learn more, or call 506-877-1050.
Each fall and spring the city organizes Hazardous Waste Days were residents can drop off their hazardous waste material. Information on these drop-off locations and dates will be provided on this website prior to the event.
Winter Tips for Waste Collection
Because of unpredictable winter weather and snow accumulation, please observe the following tips on your waste collection night:
- Place waste at the end of your driveway, and not on top of snowbanks. This makes it easier for the collectors, who for safety reasons, are advised not to climb on snowbanks.
- If you think a snowplow will be passing shortly, wait until after it has passed to place your waste curbside.
- If your waste was not picked up because of a storm, please remove it from the curbside and wait until your next waste collection night.
