2016 Backyard Composting Sessions.

The City of St. John's, in partnership with the MMSB and MUN Botanical Garden, are offering free backyard composting information sessions to residents of St. John's.  This year we are offering two different bin types. You can purchase a standard compost bin for the low price of $40.00 (HST included). Alternatively, you can purchase a tumbler compost bin for $55.00 (HST included). The tumbler bin is free standing and doesn't contact the ground.

These sessions are for St. John's residents only.

You can attend a free backyard composting information session without registering. Cash is the only method of payment if you will be purchasing a bin after the session. Receipts will be provided. For debit and credit cards, you must pre-register for the session.

NEW Waste App 'St. John’s Waste and Recycling'

The City has discontinued the ‘My Waste’ app and residents are encouraged to download the new St. John’s Waste and Recycling app (see the right hand sidebar).

With our new St. John’s Waste and Recycling app you will get reminders and notifications sent to you about your garbage and recycling schedule, changes to the schedule due to weather and holidays as well as updates on new and upcoming events. 

You can also sign up for reminders, without having to download the app.

We can send you reminders by:
  • text message
  • email
  • Twitter direct message
  • automated phone call
  • online calendar
