Waste Collection in the Winter

In case of a snowstorm,

  • listen to CKBW or call the Kaizer Meadow Environmental Management Centre at 902-275-2330 or the Public Works Department at 902-275-1312 in case waste collection is cancelled;
  • check on this website under Event Cancellations;
  • if cancelled, collection will be held the Saturday immediately following your regular collection; and
  • remove your materials from the roadside as soon as possible to avoid the snow plow.

If you live on a private road, plow and salt/sand before collection. If your road isn't plowed, the truck may not collect your materials.


Issues with your green cart freezing? Place your cart out for collection every two weeks, even if it isn't full. Using acceptable compostable bags/liners will also help!
