No 2020 Spring Clean-Up Program for residents of Colchester County due to COVID-19
To assist each household with bulky waste disposal you will be able to place two large items curbside on your regularly scheduled garbage collection day for pick up. This bulky waste collection is only for properties that are currently eligible for residential curbside collection.
Two bulky item collection begins for Municipality of Colchester residents on May 4, 2020 and will continue until March 31, 2021. The program will be reassessed throughout the year to evaluate if it will continue or if Spring Clean Ups will be reinstated for the Spring of 2021. Only residential properties that are three units or less, apartment building (four to six units) and nonprofit organizations that have applied for residential curbside collection are eligible. Please refer to your collection schedule to ensure that materials are placed out on the appropriate collection day.
