Curb Side Collection – Waste Containers

CNWM introduced its collection policy in 2015 for Curb Side Collection.  Over the past 5 years the program has been carried out with great success.  But a couple of ongoing issues have been identified by CNWM and its collectors.  Some of which are:

  • Waste not at the curb (on personal property)
  • Garbage containers – boxes not in good condition

This information has been reviewed by the CNWM Board and a motion was made to inform all communities from which CNWM collects that effective May 1, 2020 all waste will be collected from portable bins made of plastic or metal and must be placed at the curbside/roadside by 8 a.m. on collection day.

If residents wish to continue to use garbage boxes, waste must be removed from the box and placed to the curbside/roadside on collection day and can be covered with a net, tarpaulin or blanket.

CNWM waste collectors will not be removing waste from garbage boxes or collecting waste on personal property effective May 1, 2020.  If waste is not to the curb it will not be collected.
