True riches

When you live here, you know why. The land, the sea, the people, true riches.

Waste Collection

Waste Drop Off

The Guysborough Waste Management Facility has a customer waste drop-off as well as a facility for materials suitable for reuse. The waste drop off is located just off the scale. It is paved, sheltered, and kept as clean and accommodating as possible. Residents are asked to separate their waste and dispose in the appropriate container. There are five (5) large, clearly-labeled containers. 

The facility also offers safe disposal of most household hazardous materials and electronics.

Reuse

At the customer waste drop off, the Guysborough Waste Management Facility offers a facility to recycle used items that are still of value. It is in the garage attached to the drop-off. Residents are asked to place any reusable items in the reuse center. Others can remove these items. If someone is looking for a particular item, let staff know, and they will keep an eye out for it. For safety reasons, scavenging through the large stock piles is not permitted.
