Sort It Central
Recycling and Garbage Program
Central Newfoundland Waste Management (CNWM) is pleased to announce Sort It - Central, a new curbside recycling and garbage collection program that will launch on Monday, March 2, 2015.
With a focus on increasing waste diversion and protecting the environment, Sort It - Central requires everyone to properly sort their waste into two streams, using clear bags for garbage and transparent blue bags for recyclables, including paper fibre and mixed containers.
As you are aware, residents and businesses in communities throughout Central Newfoundland have been participating in existing waste diversion programs for many years, and we know they are looking forward to the launch of Sort It – Central so they can do more to reduce the amount of waste destined for our landfill.
We also understand there will be a period of transition as the program launches, and we have developed a comprehensive public education plan to ensure that residents and businesses have the opportunity to learn how to properly sort their waste as well as the flexibility to implement appropriate waste diversion infrastructure, where required.
In addition to conducting stakeholder outreach, a local radio and print advertising campaign has been developed to help create awareness about the Sort It - Central program. Commencing February 16, 2015, residents and businesses in Central Newfoundland will receive an information package that includes a waste sorting guide as well as samples of clear and transparent blue bags. Complete program details are also available online at www.cnwmc.com.
Some items are not collected at the curb. Materials such as construction and demolition waste, bulk waste, metals, household hazardous waste, paint, electronics and fluorescent light bulds can be dropped off to the Central Regional Waste Management Site or your nearest Transfer Station during regular hours of operation.
Gander Bay Transfer Station: 700-2826
