Flood Debris Pickup

The City of Fredericton will be offering a special debris pick-up service for those in flooded areas until May 28, 2018.

Please put any household flood debris or large debris from your property at the roadside.  These materials should be piled away from regular household garbage and recycling materials. Sand bags may be disposed of with flood debris.

Any household hazards materials should be piled separate from flood debris. They can also be taken to the Fredericton Solid Waste Commission every Wednesday or Saturday. For more information, click here.

People should start tearing out wet building materials as soon as possible to avoid mould build up. Do not burn flood debris, as this can cause negative environmental impacts. Illegal dumping is also prohibited and offenders are subject to fines.

Cleanup Kits / Support

  • Free Red Cross Flood Cleanup Kits are now available at 318 Maple Street, Fredericton, from 8:30am to 7:00 p.m. daily. They will be available from Service New Brunswick offices on Queen Street starting May 14, during regular business hours.
  • Samaritan’s Purse Canada is helping New Brunswick’s flood victims by sending one of its specially equipped Disaster Relief Units to the water-logged province, and recruiting volunteers to clean damaged homes. Anyone needing Samaritan’s Purse clean-up assistance can call 1-844-547-2663.
