Garbage pick-up and recycling
Florenceville-Bristol's garbage and recycling is collected weekly by J.S. Bellis, and taken to a waste management facility. This curbside pickup is included in the municipal tax rate for residential properties.
Curbside garbage collection is every Thursday. The second Thursday of each month is Recycling pickup week, however the Town has added a garbage collection on that week as well. On Recycling week, there will be one truck picking up recycling and one truck picking up garbage, so please keep them separate. Please refer to the blue bin recycling calendar for more information. Garbage or recycling needs to be curbside by 7am to ensure pickup.
In addition to weekly pick-ups, the town has three special pick-ups throughout the year, as well as two Household Hazardous Waste drop-off dates and Christmas tree pick-up after the holiday season. These dates are available on J.S. Bellis' website and scroll to View Clean-up Schedule.
Old appliances, electronics, scrap metal, single-use plastics (ie grocery bags), household batteries, and car batteries can be taken to Crain's Bottle Exchange in Bath.
Leftover paint can be dropped off at Wiebe's Home Building Centre in Centreville and they'll dispose of it for you.
The Carleton Victoria Wood Producers on Perkins Way can take brush and branches Monday to Friday between 8am to 4pm. Just stop at their office and someone will direct you where to go.
Property tax bills can be paid at Service New Brunswick, or your personal commercial bank.
