White Goods

The Commission also seasonally operates a “white goods” recycling program for fridges, stoves and other appliances.  By appointment, from May through October, they will retrieve the appliance from the front yard of the resident.  Please call 466-7830 for an appointment.


New regulations in New Brunswick shift the financial and operational responsibility for recycling from municipalities to the organizations that produce and sell packaging and paper.

Circular Materials is the producer responsibility organization that is responsible for implementing and managing the new extended producer responsibility recycling system in New Brunswick. As of May 1, 2024, Circular Materials is now responsible for all recycling in New Brunswick. for more information please visit
