Solid Waste

Ensuring reliable service and increasing diversion.

Our History

View our Solid Waste timeline and learn more about how our recycling, composting and garbage programs have evolved over time.

Current Initiatives

Service recommendations are made in our recently completed Draft Garbage and Recycling Program Review. Check back for updates on the implementation of recommendations.
In our own facilities, we are phasing out office garbage cans, increasing our ability to recycle and introducing office vermicomposting pilots for lunch scraps. Follow our Twitter and Facebook page for updates on our corporate initiatives.

The City of Fredericton encourages residents to participate in backyard composting and/or vermicomposting at home. Find information on how to get started by clicking on the links above.
