We offer waste management services through curbside garbage pick-up, recycling pick-up, and the operation of a Transfer Stations at the Wilno site and Combermere site and a full waste disposal site at Bark Lake, which also includes a Re-use Centre and an electronic drop depot.

The Municipality of Madawaska Valley uses CivicWeb to manage Garbage & Recycling associated documents. Please visit our dedicated documents portal on madawaskavalley.civicweb.net.

Clear Bag Policy for Garbage

Al household garbage must be in a clear bag or open container so that all waste is visible and easily identified by the Attendant. The purpose of this regulation is to help ensure that recyclables and hazardous waste materials do not end up in our landfills. If any recyclable materials or prohibited waste are found within the clear bags, the bags will be refused, or the Attendant will ask you to remove and properly sort the waste.

Illegal Dumping

Illegal dumping is the dumping of waste anywhere except at an approved waste disposal site. This includes in the woods, along the side of the road, on private property, in someone else’s dumpster without permission, or at the gate of a waste management site. Illegal dumping is costly to taxpayers and damaging to the environment. Incidents of illegal dumping are investigated by the By-law Enforcement Officer, and offenders will be fined as per the Schedule of Fees By-Law.
