Special Waste Collections

Special Collection

The Municipality offers three special or "bulky waste" collections per year in the spring, summer and fall. To make the most of your special collection, follow these guidelines.

If you have more items than the special collection guidelines will allow, please remember that all items can be taken to Kaizer Meadow any time of the year for free up to 1,500 lbs to residents of the Municipality. If you have questions, please contact the Solid Waste Department at 902-275-2330.


Leaf Collection

Bagged leaves are collected in November (check the Waste Collection Calendar for dates). This is the only time that clear, plastic bags can be used to bag leaves. It is also the only time that an unlimited amount of bagged leaves will be collected.

During regular collection, yard waste (leaves, grass, trimmings) can go in your green cart. If your green cart is full, you can put up to three paper bags alongside your green cart each collection. ALTHOUGH, please do not put branches in the bag...tie them in 3' long bundles and place them alongside your green cart. Branches can go inside the green cart IF they do not exceed 2" in diameter or stick out of the of the top of the cart.


Christmas Tree Collection

Christmas trees are collected in January. Check the Waste Collection Calendar each year for the schedule.
