Residents and the motoring public are advised that three-way stops have been established at the intersection of Corrigan Street and Raynham Avenue, and at the intersection of Morgan and Raynham. Please note that right-of-way at all-way stops is granted to the first vehicle to come to a full stop; if two vehicles stop at the same time, the vehicle on the right has the right-of-way. When in doubt, it is always safer to yield to the opposing driver. Your patience and cooperation are appreciated.

Residents are advised that with the recent fluctuations in temperature, water is sometimes running on our streets and sidewalks, ground is softening and asphalt is breaking apart.
Drivers are asked to exercise caution when driving through areas of accumulated water because of the possibility of concealed pot holes and to avoid splashing pedestrians who may be walking nearby.
To report an unmarked pot hole, please notify the Public Works Depot by telephone at 651-5938, or submit an online service request here.
Thank you for your assistance and cooperation.

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.
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.
