In September of 2015, a sub-committee of Council was formed to deal with several concerns on ATV*, UTV**, & snowmobile use throughout the Town of Gander.
The Committee’s mandate has been to:
- Assess the existing trail network for appropriate use/accessibility
- Identify necessary upgrades and associated costs
- Create a trail system maintenance plan
- Develop policies/regulations for use of the trail system
- Ensure development regulations respect the integrity of the trail system
- Provide a safe network of trails for pedestrian and recreation vehicle use
- Increase trail-base activity
The Committee would like to gather input from residents on their thoughts and opinions on the use of these recreational vehicles on trailways in and around the community.
Please complete this short survey (whether or not you own an ATV) and help us make informed decisions to ensure our trailways are safe and enjoyable for everyone.

The Town of Gander is launching its Online Services to include a feature on our website which allows residents and business owners to pay for specific Town services online.
Online Services will allow residents to pay their taxation bills and view their assessment notices, as well as apply for a building permit, and enroll into our Pre-authorized debit plan online.
This feature was developed in response to feedback from citizens and staff that asked for more online services. The option to pay online will reduce wait times and speed up processing times, and be available around the clock.
The Town of Gander worked on the project for more than a year, working with internal resources and external vendors to ensure Online Services would be simple to use and meet rigorous security standards.
This is the newest addition to our existing online services which include GIS map, Bizpal, Recreation Event Sign Up, our Events Calendar and Business Directory. Residents and business owners can register quickly and easily. Once registered, users can see current bills, past bills, make full or partial payments, and print statements.
Online Services is secure and confidential, and we encourage our residents and business owners to use it.

The Town of Gander reminds residents that Garbage and Refuse Regulations require that household garbage be placed at the concrete curb no earlier than 6 a.m. and no later than 8 a.m. on your scheduled collection day. Household waste must be separated into two streams, with all recyclables placed in transparent blue bags and non-recyclable waste in transparent clear bags. Note: All garbage placed for collection shall be covered by metal or plastic container, netting or blanket from April 1st to November 30th every year.

Please heed the following guidelines for safe disposal of hazardous items:
• Needles must be in a container such as steel or heavy plastic that will prevent accidental puncture to those collecting it.
• Broken glass should be placed in a separate container and marked as such.
• Hot coals/ashes must not be put out for collection.
