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.
