https://easternregionalserviceboard.com/residents/bulk-waste/ 

Bulk waste collection begins on Wednesday, April 28. It may take a number of days for all bulk waste items to be removed from all residences. For example, furniture may be collected one day and metals on the next day.

Bulk collection Guidelines:

  • Place items at your own curb by 7 a.m. on April 28. Only your household’s items should be at the curb.
  • Place bulk items next to your garbage box or where waste is normally placed for weekly collection.
  • Separate metal items from other bulk waste (such as furniture).
  • Do not stack items.
  • All items must be bagged or bundled and tied. Scattered or loose items will not be collected.
  • Individual items must not exceed a maximum of 22 kg (50 lb).
  • A maximum of 226 kg (500 lbs) or one pick-up load (whichever is less) will be collected from each household.

Bulk items remaining curbside after collection could result in a penalty. The cost of returning to remove the material and ensure its proper disposal will be charged to the property owner.
