Proper Garbage Cover

From April 1 to November 30, the City of St. John's requires all residents to use proper garbage cover. Garbage must be placed in a bin or covered with an approved net or blanket. The bin cover must be attached to the bin so it can not blow away, and the bin must also be weighted so it can not blow away. Nets and blankets must completely cover the garbage bags.

Residents must cover their garbage to prevent the garbage from being torn open. This will reduce the amount of litter in the city.

Although garbage cover is only required from April 1 to November 30 each year, the City of St. John's encourages residents to cover their garbage all year long.
