This is an important Bulk Collection message from The Burin Peninsula Regional Service Board:
Please be advised that due to the safety measures in place for COVID-19 our Monthly Household Bulk Collection is delayed and tentatively rescheduled for June. Please follow the Provincial Fire Regulations and refrain from burning your bulk and waste items. Also we ask that you not place items at the curbside until a new date is confirmed and check our website for updates. The Landfill Site continues usual operations for residents who wish to deliver their own Bulk items to the Public Drop Off area. Safety is our main concern as we continue to provide essential collection services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
