: Recycling should be placed with the bags of garbage for pickup.  If space is limiting then
bags of recyclables can be placed on the ground uncovered.  Pests should not be an issue if the
recyclables are properly rinsed and cleaned, though it's still encouraged to cover garbage bags.

How: All recyclables are to be placed in transparent bags that can be found in most local stores
next to the regular garbage bags.  The bags must be clear blue.Recyclables must be separated into containers and paper/cardboard, and placed in two different
bags.  A list of products that can be recycled is provided below.

Containers must be empty and rinsed with water and plastic caps removed from bottles.

On recycling pick-up day, place the bags of recyclables with the bags of garbage for removal.

Absolutely no glass is accepted in the curbside recycling program.  A single piece of glass will
contaminate the entire bag of recycling so it's asked of residents not to include glass.  Recyclable beverage containers, including glass recyclables will continue to be accepted at the Town Recycling Depot located behind the Town Hall in aide of St. Francis of Assisi School.

Why: Recycling is great both financially and environmentally.  The tippage fee for recyclable
material is lower than that for garbage so the Town is paying less to bring the recycables to the
depot than it would to bring them to the landfill.  Environmentally there are many reasons why 
recycling is beneficial.  Landfills add tons of greenhouse gases, the gases are responsible for
climate change, to the atmosphere every year so the less garbage in the landfill the better.
Also, many recyclable materials can take hundreds of years to break down while recycling
puts them back in to action as soon as possible and of course; having less garbage makes the
area more beautiful.

Recyclables accepted are as follows:

Paper Products:

Writing and Computer Paper (lined, white, coloured)
Books (remove hardcovers)
Boxboard (cereal, tissue, detergent boxes and more)
Egg Cartons (the cardboard kind)
Paper Bags
Toilet Paper Rolls
Paper Towel Rolls
Corrugated Cardboard


Aluminum (pop and beer cans, pie plates)
Plastic Bottles (water, pop, liquor)
Plastic Containers (ice cream, ketchup, bleach, shampoo, butter, sour cream, household cleaners, salad dressing, yogurt and more)
Tin Cans (soup, coffee, tuna, cat food & more)
Gable Tops (milk and juice cartons)
Tetra Paks (juice boxes, soup & more)
          Please Note:The only plastic that will not be taken is # 4 (plastic film).  Plastics from # 1-3, 5-7 will be collected.

Garbage Collection:

Regular garbage collection is scheduled as follows:

Logy Bay - Tuesday
Middle Cove - Thursday
Outer Cove - Thursday

A reminder that garbage must be cleared on the road right-of-way and containers cleared of snow before 8:00 am on collection day.  In order to keep our community clean all residents are asked to ensure that your garbage placed by the roadside is either placed in covered containers or garbage boxes or covered with material/netting to prevent crows and rodents from accessing the garbage.  Failure to do so will result in Council taking further action.

Residents of the Greater Avalon Region can now dispose of their household hazardous waste on
a regular basis at the new Robin Hood Bay Regional Waste Management Facility.  For a
schedule of availible times, please visit .

Animal Control

A reminder that our by-laws require that animals be penned in or on a leash when on private or
public property (including Middle Cove and Outer Cove Beaches).  Animal ID Tags assist in
locating lost pets; these may be obtained at the Town Council Office free of charge. Residents
are required to clean up after their animals when walking or running them in public areas.  Dogs
are not permitted on the softball field, soccer field, Tennis Court or playground area.  We would
encourage all dog owners to adhere to Poop and Scoop practices for the health and respect for
all others within all Town areas. 

Animal Control Fines: $50.00-1st offence; $75.00-2nd offence; $100.00-3rd offence; subsequent violation notices within a twelve (12) month period will result in an additional $100.00 fine per violation. Daily impound fee $ 10.00.
