Waste Collection

Waste management for our community is completely controlled and managed by the Town of Clarenville. Vardy’s Waste Disposal currently holds the contract for waste collection.

Residential Waste

Waste and recyclable material should be sorted at home and will be collected at the curb through the weekly collection service.

  • Garbage must be at curbside no later than 7:00am.
  • Garbage must be placed in a bin or covered at curbside.
  • Garbage must be in a garbage bag (regular black is acceptable), not kitchen catchers or super-market sized bags.
  • Each bag should not weigh more than 50 lbs.
  • A limit of 6 garbage bags can be set out each collection day.
  • No limit for recyclables.
  • Household Hazardous Waste SHOULD NOT be amongst your garbage.


Waste Collection Days:

  • Monday – Clarenville from Hibernia Drive to Gardiner Place
  • Tuesday – Clarenville (Shoal Harbour) from Beaumont Hamel Drive to Cabot Home Centre (Road to Random Island).
  • If a holiday falls on a Monday, Clarenville garbage will be picked up on Tuesday and Shoal Harbour garbage will be picked up on Wednesday.
Household waste is not accepted at the Clarenville Waste Recovery Facility, however bulk waste is accepted on site. Visit: https://easternregionalserviceboard.com/residents/waste-recovery-facilities/ for a list of what can be disposed at the facility.


Recycling Program

Curbside Recycling program occurs every second week after that (as per schedule above). Recyclables MUST be in clear blue bags. Most local retailers have the proper bags.

Preparing Your Recyclables

1. Sort recyclables into two groups: paper products and containers
2. Place all paper products together in clear blue recycling bags (separate from containers)
3. Ensure all containers are rinsed then placed in clear blue recycling bags (separate from paper products)

Please Note: Loose cardboard will not be collected


Bulk Collection

There will be a Bulk Collection TWO times a year. Each Bulk Collection will consist of two days, first day for bulk non-metal and the second day for bulk metal.

  • Bulk items must be placed at curbside no later than 7am on collection day and no earlier than 24 hrs before collection day.
  • Please ensure to separate non-metal items from metal for the assigned collection day. Any bulk that is not separated will not be taken.
  • Black garbage bags are not accepted during bulk pick-up.
  • A limit of 500 lbs or one pick-up load (whichever is less) will be collected from each household.
  • Individual items should be no more than 50 lbs.
  • The Clarenville Waste Recovery Facility will also accept residential bulk waste that cannot be placed at the curb for weekly collection. All materials must be offloaded by hand.
