Bulk Garbage

Effective March 18th, the City of Mount Pearl shifted to providing core services only in an attempt to reduce the spread of COVID-19. This includes bulk garbage appointments, which are suspended until further notice. 

Prescheduled bulk garbage collection takes place in April, May, September and October.

During June, July and August, residents can request a maximum of two bulk collections free of charge. If you require collection at any other time, you may avail of our pick up service, which requires a prepaid fee of $45 for each service. These collections take place on Mondays and are by appointment only.

To schedule a pick up, residents must submit a bulk garbage application. Bulk Garbage Application

To ensure maximum efficiency, the City is divided into five zones for bulk garbage collection. Each zone receives collection on a specific day, as indicated below. Please note that bulk garbage collection may take up to one week to complete. You may also bring your bulk items to Robin Hood Bay.
