2018 schedule for the Mobile Eco-Depot

 
Southeast Eco360 offers a program making safe and responsible waste disposal more accessible for all residents. The Mobile Eco-Depot visits each municipality a minimum of three times a year for a period of two days (Wednesdays and Thursdays, noon – 8 pm). Each region will host an event in a different community each month, and here is the schedule for the next months:
 
-          February 7th & 8th at 54 Arena Rd. in Cap-Pelé (Arena parking lot)
-          March 7th & 8th at 1455 Route 133 in Grand-Barachois (Grand-Barachois Hall parking lot)
-          April 4th & 5th at 84 Festival St. in Shediac (Arena parking lot)
-          May 9th & 10th at 2 East Main St. in Port Elgin (Parking area at the corner of East Main St. and Shemogue Rd.)
-          June 6th & 7th at 54 Arena Rd. in Cap-Pelé (Arena parking lot)
-          July 4th & 5th at 1455 Route 133 in Grand-Barachois (Grand-Barachois Hall parking lot)
-          August 8th & 9th at 84 Festival St. in Shediac (Arena parking lot)
 
Please note that in Beaubassin-est, the collection will be done again in the parking lot of the Salle Grand-Barachois, and not at the old Petits-Travailleurs school as the last time.

-          appliances (limit of 1 of each type per client),
-          electronic waste,

-          small household machinery,
-          construction, demolition and renovation waste,
-          car and truck tires (maximum of 20” or 51 cm diameter),
-          brush/branches and yard waste,
-          ashes,
-          clear glass only (bottles & jars),
-          cardboard and paper,
-          metal,
-          Household Hazardous Waste.
 
Household Hazardous Waste
 
In January 2018, residents discovered a bag filled with hundreds of syringes on the edge of Butte-à-Napoléon Road in the Saint-André-LeBlanc region. The situation has been resolved through the collaboration of various agencies, but it is deplorable that such situations are happening in our beautiful community.
 
It is important to protect our environment and ensure public safety, and such actions are absolutely unacceptable. In the case of syringes, it is possible to return them in a sharps container to the pharmacy for safe disposal.
 
For all Hazardous Household Waste (HHW), Eco360 Southeast will safely dispose of it through the Mobile Eco-Depot or if you bring it at the on-site HHW Depot located at 100 Bill Slater Street in Berry Mills. The HHW Depot is open during regular operating hours and is free of charge for private household waste. Please refer to the Sorting Guide for acceptable HHW materials.
 
For large waste and bulky items like household appliances, furniture, large electronics, large toys, etc., they are not suitable for your regular household waste. You can bring them to the Mobile Eco-Depot or at the Southeast Eco360’s Solid Waste Facility for a reasonable fee. Alternatively, you can dispose of these materials at your curb during the Special Collections.
 
For construction and demolition waste, they must be properly sorted and brought to the Mobile Eco-Depot or at the secure construction and demolition site for a reduced tipping fee. This would include such materials as asphalt shingles, Gyproc and drywall, windows, concrete and bricks, toilets and plumbing fixtures.
 
Should you have any questions, please contact 877-1050 or visit eco360.ca.
