We are asking for your cooperation in ensuring that your waste is at the curb by 8:00 a.m. on collection day.

Waste Collection Policy Reminder

 

Northern Peninsula Regional Service Board (NorPen) would like to thank residents for their cooperation regarding waste collection.

 

NorPen’s policy on waste collection is curbside (maximum of 10 ft. from edge of pavement).

 

Employee and public safety must be top priority while providing this service.  Therefore, we are asking residents to respect and support this policy to ensure the health and safety of all involved.


Please note that the focus is the placement of waste to the curb and not placement of bins.  This can be done by using stationary bins, waste covered by a blanket, roll out bins etc. Waste has to be within 10ft of the edge of the pavement by 8:00 a.m. on collection day. 

 

Please see our website (www.norpenservices.ca) for further information and add your e-mail address to our list of subscribers to receive updates.

 

NorPen would like to thank all residents for following this policy for waste collection.

Disposal of Ashes

Please note that due to weight, and safety issues around bags breaking open and the possibilty of hot ashes causing a fire in waste collection trucks, we are asking residents to not place ashes to the curb for pick up by our collectors. Ashes can be disposed of at the landfill site with assistance from the landfill attendant. Sorry for the inconvenience.



Curbside Compost Changes- Subregion 4

For all those participating in the Curbside Compost Pilot in Subregion 4 (Eddies Cove West to River of Ponds), please note that compost is being picked up starting at 8:00 AM prior to the collection of regular household garbage. Therefore, it is very important that compost bins are put to the curb by 8:00. 


Also, compost bins are to be placed next to garbage boxes and not inside as we initially suggested. The collector will place bins inside of the garbage box when bins are emptied.

Electronics Recycling Now Available for Residents of Subregion 3 (Eddies Cove East - Castor River S

Residents of Subregion 3 (Eddies Cove East - Castor River South) can now recycle electronic waste. Norpen has set up an Electronics Waste Depot at the St.Barbe Landfill Site where residents can drop off electronic waste (old televisions, computers, telephones, cellular devices, etc.). Details available at http://www.norpenservices.ca/RECYCLING_PROGRAMS_electronics_recycling.php#NorPen


New Card System

Welcome to our new NorPen Card System for use at our 4 landfill sites for the delivery of commercial/business Sector.  For your convenience, Cards and Business Set Up Forms will be available at the site when you arrive.  Landfill Attendants will provide assistance on how to use the card upon your first visit to site.  

Effective August 1, 2016, the ID number(s) on the card will be assigned to your business/company.  When delivering waste to the landfill site, the delivery person will need to show or give their ID number.   If your company has multiple delivery people, they each will need an ID Card. These cards will be attached to your company for all future waste drop-off’s.  Your first card is free of charge; however, there will be a $5.00 charge for replacements so please don’t misplace or damage your card(s).

There will be no need for your employee to sign and names will not be recorded on the invoices.  Each drop-off will automatically generate a waybill which will be sent to the email address provided by your company with the amount of waste and the Business ID Number.  The first emailed waybill may go into your junk/spam mail as it will come from an automated system that your email account will not recognize.  Once you approve the email as not being junk/spam any further waybills will go directly to your inbox. Companies will need to protect their Business ID Number to prevent anyone else from using it.

Keep it safe and keep it private to protect your business from charges that may not be yours.  A BUSINESS SET UP FORM can be found at the bottom of this page.

Keeping Roads Clear and Safe

Service NL has increased its monitoring of vehicles transporting cargo on major roadways for this summer to promote cleaner and safer roads for motorists.  Highway enforcement officials will engage in more vehicle checks, maintain a greater presence at major landfill facilities, and will increase collaboration with law enforcement agencies to ensure drivers know how to properly secure a load for transport, and to ensure offences are addressed.  Service NL reminds the public that when taking waste to a landfill:  ** Large objects such as washers, dryers, and furniture must be properly secured with straps or ropes capable of restraining the weight of the object.  **Other loads of smaller debris must be covered with a tarp or netted material to prevent items from blowing around or falling from the load. Should any motorist observe poorly secured cargo on provincial roadways, they are encouraged to call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222 -TIPS (8477)

Composting Reduces Waste

We all know that compost soil is great for our gardens, but there are also many environmental benefits to backyard composting. It reduces the amount of waste sent to the landfill, greenhouse gas emissions, pollution and the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

Partnering with MMSB provided an opportunity to purchase compost bins for just $21 + tax. Normally backyard compost bins retail between $50 and $70. Also, educational training is provided by NorPen, free of charge. Our goal is to make composting as easy as possible to ensure that those who purchase the bins become committed users who actively divert 30% of their waste.
