Garbage pick-up and recycling
Sackville’s garbage and recycling is collected weekly by Miller Waste, and taken to a waste management facility operated by eco 360 on behalf of the South East Regional Service Commission, whose goal is to maximize diversion of materials from landfill and minimize environmental impact. Eco 360 uses a 3-bag Waste Sorting System – blue (recyclables), green (organics) and clear (garbage). Green bags are picked up weekly, with blue and clear bags alternating every week.
Eco 360 also offers a Mobile Eco-Depot Program which visits communities across Southeastern New Brunswick. Information on Sackville visits, and what material is acceptable for disposal is available here.
In addition to weekly pick-ups, the town has three special pick-ups throughout the year, as well as two Household Hazardous Waste drop-off dates and Christmas tree pick-up after the holiday season. Special pick-ups are posted on our calendar, on Twitter and on Facebook.
