The Ministry of Public Works is advising that due to the Labour Day holiday, household waste that would normally be collected on Monday, 5th of September, 2022, will instead be collected on Tuesday, 6th of September.


All garbage collection the week of Labour Day will follow a rollover schedule with Tuesday’s garbage collected on Wednesday, Wednesday’s collected on Thursday, Thursday’s collected on Friday and Friday’s collected on Saturday. 

Recycling collection will not be impacted by the holiday. West End recycling will be collected on Thursday 8th of September, while East End recyclables will be collected on Friday 9th of September.

The Tynes Bay Pubic Drop Off will be open during the holiday from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. and is free to drivers of private cars, L and LP vehicles. Recyclables and other items are also accepted.
