The Municipality of the District of Lunenburg and the Towns of Bridgewater and Mahone Bay have Solid Waste By-laws which govern the collection of waste within their areas.

The by-laws outline the responsibilities of residents and businesses regarding waste management and include guidelines about how to sort waste, how to store it, what can be put out for collection and how much.

Waste education and penalties may be issued by the Outreach & Compliance Officer in cases where waste is improperly stored or disposed of. Questions, call (902) 543-2991.
