The City of Fredericton’s curbside garbage collection program provides convenient pick-up and disposal service of most household waste that is not recyclable. Waste is delivered to the Capital Region Service Commission’s (CRSC) landfill.

Residential solid waste including garbage and garden waste are collected. Material NOT collected includes ashes, street rubbish, household furniture and furnishings, construction and demolition debris. For those who choose to not participate in backyard composting, organic household material can also be included in the garbage that is collected. Since batteries are composed of toxic materials, they should stay out of the waste and landfill stream. Rechargeable and single use batteries can be returned to several retail stores in the Fredericton Region and are accepted for drop-off at the Household Hazardous Waste depot.

Collection & Disposal 

Collection and disposal is coordinated by the City. The department works with a contractor, selected through a tender process, to carry out the collection of residential solid waste. The contractor collects waste on a specific day for each of five defined areas of the City.

Waste collection services are provided for approximately 20,000 residential properties with proper containers and access for our trucks. These residences include single and double housing units, individual townhouse units, condominiums, apartment buildings with not more than four apartment units.
