Corner Brook Cleanup Rescheduled
Written by Kody Gardner on May 5, 2020
Spring Cleanup for the City of Corner Brook has been re-scheduled to May 25 – June 5. This service was postponed to give the City of Corner Brook time to work with our contractor, Murphy Brothers Ltd, on a way to ensure the safety of its employees in light of the COVID-19 Pandemic. We are pleased to say it will now take place after only a few weeks of delay.
With safety in mind, residents should do their part by sanitizing bulk-pickup items prior to putting them out.
Spring Cleanup will now take place on the following dates:
- Cleanup week, where residents can put out 6 bags instead of 4 for regular garbage pickup, will occur May 25-29.
- Bulk collection week, where residents can discard larger items, will occur June 1-5.
Curbside giveaway has been cancelled for 2020 due to safety concerns during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Curbside recycling will continue uninterrupted.
