FIRE BAN CONTINUED

Posted: July 22, 2014

Due to the dry conditions and hot temperatures the provincial government has been forced to impose a ban on all outdoor fires on the island. This includes campfires and the burning of brush in and around any forested areas. Within the municipality of Gander the backyard fire pits are included in this ban as well as all fireworks except those sanctioned and conducted by towns and local communities. The ban does not include gas barbecues. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of the Fire Inspector at 256-8866.

 MUNICIPAL LANDFILL CLOSURE

Posted: January 20, 2012

The Town of Gander advises residents and businesses that the municipal landfill site on Gander Bay Road has been permanently closed by order of the Provincial Government. No further access to this site will be permitted and regulations regarding illegal dumping will be strictly enforced.

Curbside collection of residential garbage and recyclables will continue as per existing schedules, however, businesses, building contractors and homeowners planning or engaged in major renovations are responsible to ensure that all non-recyclable refuse is transported to the Norris Arm Regional Waste Management Facility. Several companies offer commercial waste collection/disposal services on either a scheduled or on-demand basis.

Commercial cardboard should continue to be directed to VON Broadening Horizons Recycling, located at the Scotia Recycling Green Depot, 325 Garrett Drive.

Meanwhile, residents are reminded that with the closure of the Municipal Landfill, the Town must pay by weight for use of the Norris Arm facility, and this cost forms a significant portion of municipal taxation. Residents are urged to divert as much waste as possible from curbside, through recycling of containers and paper products and composting of organic waste.

Visit the VON Broadening Horizons Recycling website at www.ganderrecycling.com for information on materials accepted for recycling or to purchase a backyard composter at a subsidized unit price.

Major appliances and other metals will be accepted at Central Metals (1983) Limited, 53 McCurdy Drive, during normal business hours.

To assist residents in removal of refuse other than regular household waste, the Town will conduct clean-up week collection several times per year.

For more information on the Norris Arm Regional Waste Management Facility, including fees, procedures and accepted materials, please contact the Central Newfoundland Waste Management Authority at 709-653-2900, or visit their website at www.cnwmc.com.

 GARBAGE REGULATIONS & SCHEDULES

Posted: April 18, 2011

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.

A limit of six (6) bags per household will be accepted on each scheduled collection day. Empty containers and any garbage/refuse not collected under these regulations must be removed from the curb before 8:30 p.m. the same day.

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.

Complete Garbage and Refuse Regulations, along with the regular collection schedule, may be found by clicking here, or by calling the Public Works Depot at 651-5938.
