Automated Garbage Collection Coming to CBS

Trash collection in Conception Bay South is about to become automated.

This means that garbage carts will be emptied using a mechanical arm on a garbage truck, eliminating the need for workers to lift and haul garbage.

It’s a safer, smarter, and cleaner way to collect garbage.

The program will be phased in over 3 years. Only residents in Phase 1 will receive automated waste collection this fall.

At this time, the program does not include recycling, and only applies to garbage.
