Colchester County Council will meet Thursday evening, September 29, 2022, to finalize plans for yard debris collection throughout the municipality.  This has been a topic of concern for many residents since post Fiona recovery efforts began.

Given the large geographic nature of the municipality; the need to ensure plenty of notice is given; and to allow time for residents to gather materials - a multi-day plan designed to cover all quadrants of the municipality will be proposed.  Additionally, it is recognized that residents may benefit from having time to leverage recently announced Provincial funding contributions of $250 for residents to clean up their properties.

Options for spoiled food compost drop-off are also being explored in areas where regular compost collection is not scheduled to take place in the immediate future.  Further updates on potential drop off locations and special collection details will be shared as soon as available on the Municipality’s website (, social media channels, to those subscribed to the Colchester Solid Waste App, and will be available by calling the Solid Waste Helpline at 902-895-4777.

Also, reminder that tipping fees for yard debris delivered to the Colchester Waste Management facilities in Kemptown will be waived until Monday October 3, 2022.   For all other waste drop-off, only cash will be accepted until power is restored to the site.

The Municipality would like to thank residents for their patience during this challenging time.
