Bulky Waste Collection
Residents of the Municipality of Lunenburg, Town of Bridgewater and Town of Mahone Bay can place bulky items at these times:
Two bulky landfill items can be placed curbside every two weeks on your garbage collection day in all three areas. Wood and metal items not collected until fall.
Wood and metal items can be placed curbside during a special fall collection. Wood and metal items are collected during a dedicated fall collection so they can be recycled and diverted from landfill.
