Public Drop Off Bins
All customers entering the site with waste must cross the weigh scales first.
The scale operator then directs customers to the appropriate set of bins or drop off location on-site for their wastes. The majority of waste delivered to the site is directed toward the public drop-off bins. The bins are provided for residents and businesses. One set accepts recyclables (blue bags), paper, cardboard, compost and garbage. The Recycling Guide outlines how to separate these items. The second set of bins are designated for construction and demolition wastes. Tipping fees are charged according to waste type.
Staff assist customers as they use the bins. They can answer any questions and provide waste sorting brochures. Customers may also call (902) 543-2991 with questions before dropping off waste.
Residents and businesses can also drop off Electronic Products Recycling Association electronics free of charge during the Community Recycling Centre's regular hours of operation. Items such as TVs, stereos and computers are accepted as part of the provincial recycling stewardship program.
The New Germany Enviro Center accepts electronics. The Center is located at 124 Copeland Road, New Germany. Call (902) 644-7551 for hours.
