Occasionally, I have noticed "plastic looking" bags, cups and cutlery on the market that are labelled "Compostable/Biodegradable". Are these items acceptable in the green cart?
NO. Pictou County has a cart-based organics program in which compost is produced very quickly. For that reason, these types of items do not have time to decompose in the process and are therefore not accepted in our program.
For roll-off & front end containers contact Red-E-Bins at (902) 928-8826 or GFL at (902) 755-6638. Check out our house clean-out guides located on the resources page
If I only have one bag of garbage now, can I still use a small, solid, colored bag, ie: grocery bag or a regular size black garbage bag?
Microwaves are banned from landfill and must be brought to an enviro-depot for proper recycling. Learn more about electronics recycling by visiting www.recyclemyelectronics.ca/ns
These items can be brought to the Waste Management Facility at Mount William for disposal. You are no longer required to have the freon gas removed - it is removed on site. Residents can also contact EfficiencyNS for fridge and freezer removal - learn more here: https://www.efficiencyns.ca/residential/services-rebates/fridge-freezer-recycling/
