Look for signs indicating whether your road has been restricted before putting your waste out for collection.
For more information, call: Provincial Roads, Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (902) 543-4121 (or visit their website) Municipal Roads, Municipality of Lunenburg (902) 543-8181.
If your road is restricted, place your waste at the nearest public road which isn't posted by 7:00 am on your regular collection day. Call the waste hotline at 1-855-530-3324 for details about where to place your waste.
Paper coffee cups and waxy cold drink cups do not break down during the composting process. The plastic liners and waxy coatings on these cups cause contamination. Please put them in the garbage—not in your green cart.
For more information, call (902) 543-2991.
Starting in January 2018, Mahone Bay residents will be able to place one bulky item curbside for collection on the regular garbage collection week (Green Week).

Black bears were spotted in several communities within the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg in the spring and summer of 2017. Bears may be attracted to the smell of waste.
The Department of Natural Resources offers information about what attracts bears and how to keep them away.
