SNBSC has now replaced the community blue bins throughout the region with curbside recycling carts. It is clear that Saint Andrews residents have embraced the program, as the first pick-up day on Sept. 6th resulted in 4 tonnes of recyclables being diverted from the landfill from our Town alone.
Saint Andrews is updating its Municipal Plan. The Municipal Plan is a document that your council will use to ensure they are making decisions in a way that is in the public interest. The town is mandated by the New Brunswick Community Planning Act to do this every ten years.

The Southwest New Brunswick Service Commission will be launching a new residential recycling program this year, replacing the current system of community bins. The new service will see new mobile recycling containers delivered to resident’s homes in the region beginning in July, with the program for picking up the containers starting in September. The new program will see an expansion of recyclables accepted, including more kinds of plastic and tin cans.
Residents sometimes will see some discolouration in their water due to the fact that the hot water tank needs to be flushed. This may not solve each concern but it is a place to start. NB Power has produced a “how to” for your information.
If you see or encounter any animal that you know or suspect has rabies the first step is to call Public Health at 811 to make a report. The process for dealing with infected animals begins with Public Health who in turn works through a process with the Department of Natural Resources to address the situation. For detailed information about rabies go to www.gnb.ca/naturalresources, click on Wildlife then click on Wildlife Related Diseases.
