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.
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 709-651-5938.
