 County draft 2020 2021

Due to the current situation with COVID19, the Municipality has cancelled the Special Collection for 2020.  However,residents are reminded that they are permitted to place one bulky item out per garbage collection.  Materials such as construction and demolition material, metal, and electronics will NOT be collected.   We are asking residents to take materials that are not accepted curbside to the Cumberland Central Landfill, or hold them until the transfer stations open.  Electronics can be taken to an EPRA Drop off Centre.  IF YOU ARE UNSURE WHAT IS ELIGIBLE FOR COLLECTION CALL THE CUMBERLAND CENTRAL LANDFILL AT 902-667-5141.
