Pilot Project Explores Potential for Residents to Increase Waste Diversion

Written by on October 29, 2014

PrintThe Multi-Materials Stewardship Board (MMSB), in partnership with Product Care and the Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA), is launching a pilot program to explore the potential to divert additional waste from provincial landfills through one-day recycling events that allow residents to properly dispose of multiple types of waste at one drop-off location.

The one-day recycling events enable residents who have accumulated multiple types of waste to properly dispose of their used tires, end-of-life electronics, paint and paper fibre at one convenient location.  Collection events will take place in Conception Bay South and Grand Falls-Windsor on Saturday, November 1, and in Clarenville and Corner Brook on Saturday, November 8.

The pilot program supports the existing province-wide network of recycling drop-off locations and collection events, and helps increase awareness about proper waste disposal options.

Multi-Materials Collection Events

 RESIDENTIAL PAINT, USED TIRES, E-WASTE & CARDBOARD DROP-OFF

Is your shed, basement or garage full of used tires, electronic waste, old paint cans, paper and cardboard? Drop them off at one of our four convenient one-day collection events and we’ll properly dispose of them for you.

MMSB is hosting these one-day recycling events to enable residents who have accumulated multiple types of waste to properly dispose of multiple types of waste at one convenient drop-off location. These events are being hosted in partnership with industry stewards responsible for recycling paint and electronics in Newfoundland and Labrador. These collection events support the existing collection programs available across the province for used tires, waste paint and electronic waste.
