Curbside Collection


In East Hants we provide a comprehensive curbside collection service.  Our service runs on a 2-week schedule.

Week 1 – Set all materials out for collection (garbage, recyclables, organic (green) carts and other eligible items).

Week 2 – Do not put material out.


To find your collection day enter your civic address in our “My Schedule” tool below.  This tool will also allow you to set-up reminders by email, text, twitter, or even get a phone call.


Organic Green Carts

To report a lost or damaged organics (green) cart call the Solid Waste Hotline.

New homes will receive organics (green) carts and services once a copy of the Municipal Occupancy Permit is issued.  You do not need to provide this document, it is sent direction to the Solid Waste Division.


Solid Waste Hotline: 1-888-873-3332
