Waste Collection in Annapolis County

Please be advised that waste collection services will continue to be picked up on the same day and bi-weekly schedule. 

Garbage rules will remain the same (Blue Bag 1 – Paper & Paper products; Blue Bag 2 – Recyclables, cans, plastics, cartons, foam polystyrene products; 3 Clear Bags & 1 Black bag – all other garbage)

Compost will need to be placed in a biodegradable compost bag and placed curbside on the day of your scheduled garbage pick-up. 

The County of Annapolis is providing biodegradable compost bags for residents who wish to pick up from one of the county offices:

396 Main Street, Lawrencetown
271 Granville Street, Bridgetown
752 Saint George Street, Annapolis Royal.

The County of Annapolis has contracted the services of EFR Environmental to ensure the County residents continue to receive the same valued service as in the past.

Your support for your fellow residents during this transition is greatly appreciated.
