Reduce * Reuse * Recycle

Is Your Business Recycling?

Just like households, every industry, business and institution in Pictou County must sort their waste according to provincial and municipal law. Retail stores, offices, manufacturers, churches and schools must all follow the same sorting requirements found on the Sorting Guide.

Most organizations jumped on the sorting band-wagon early on and have been doing a fantastic job ever since. However, there are some that are a little careless with sorting, or, even worse, don't sort their waste at all!

Does your office need help to improve sorting or to set-up a system? Pictou County Solid Waste is here to help.
We would be more than happy to provide your organization with:

  • Waste management presentations for employers and staff
  • Literature about Pictou County Solid Waste’s programs and provincial initiatives by RRFB Nova Scotia
  • Waste audits

Is your business hosting a Special Event? We have containers available to help organize any generated waste you may have.

You are always welcome to contact us with any waste management questions you may have. Please reference our Frequently Asked Questions page for further information.

Our Waste Reduction Hotline operates Monday— Friday from 8:00 am—4:00 pm and is here to help you.
