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 

12-week Recycling Challenge

We are challenging families to recycle even more at the curb. Use the 12-week calendar to record your household recycling behaviour - keep track of how many bags of garbage and recycling you put to the curb, any new items you recycled each week, and something new you learned about curbside recycling.

To enter the draw for the grand prize of a $1500 gift card from our sponsor RONA, just email familychallenge@stjohns.ca. During the 12-week challenge we'll periodically email you recycling tips and facts, links to short 'how to' videos and other recycling resources, plus other ways to enter recycling promotions we'll be launching on our City of St. John's social media accounts.
