WHEN IS MY COLLECTION DAY & WHAT'S MY AREA?

Skip to What's My Area?

Since October 18th, 2010 when the curbside recycling program began, the City of St. John's moved to a Fixed Collection Schedule.  

With the Fixed Collection Schedule your collection day will almost always be the same day of the week, unless it falls on a statutory holiday. Curbside garbage is collected every week, and recyclables are collected every second week. 

Garbage and recycling can be picked up at your address if certain regulations, including a 10 bag limit for each curbside entrance, are met. For further details on what waste can be put to the curb and how it must be placed for collection click here.

The 10 bag limit for each of garbage and recycling also applies to businesses, condominimums, apartment buildings and other commercial or institutional properties.

Collection calendars are mailed out in mid December. Look inside your Garbage & Recycling Reference Guide for a version of your calendar or, you can download a version below. You can also request a paper copy by calling 311.

On weeks that do not have major holidays the fixed-day garbage collection schedule is as follows:

Collection Areas Garbage Pick-up Recycling Pick-up
1A & 1B Mondays Biweekly; check your calendar
2A & 2B Tuesdays Biweekly; check your calendar
3A & 3B Wednesdays Biweekly; check your calendar
4A & 4B Thursdays Biweekly; check your calendar
5A & 5B Fridays Biweekly; check your calendar
