 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
