Hazardous Waste

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.
