The City of St. John’s will not collect yard waste for the month of May as previously announced, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This decision will be re-evaluated for the month of June, depending on circumstances with operations at that time.
Residents are asked to store their yard waste bags until such time as the program can be safely implemented.
The City of St. John’s implemented its Business Continuity Plan to ensure that essential services are not negatively impacted by COVID-19. With measures in place to protect staff and to ensure the continuation of regular, weekly garbage collection, additional services including yard waste collection have been postponed for the time being.
The Public Works Department will closely monitor progress and guidance from public health officials and will resume yard waste collection as soon as possible.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank the public for their understanding.
