Solid Waste in New Brunswick

Brunswick Waste Disposal

The Town of Brunswick’s single stream curbside recycling program allows residents to mix all recyclable items together in a blue bin and leave it curbside. No sorting or use of separate bins is required, everything goes in together! Click for a complete, printable (PDF Document) list of all our recycling items.

Please don’t put your recyclables in plastic film bags, use your blue box or a similar type container (we have free “Recycle It” bumper stickers to give out so you can label alternate recycling containers). If you have a question about whether or not a certain item is recyclable please call Public Works at 725-6654. We will let you know whether or not the material you describe is recyclable.

Curbside Rubbish Collection

The curbside rubbish collection program requires all residential household waste to be placed in special “Brunswick Bags.” In addition to the Brunswick Hannaford and Shaw’s supermarkets, several other local retailers offer the bags for sale (see below). The bags come in two sizes, 33-gallon and 15-gallon, both with a drawstring. They are sold in rolls (in a clear plastic sleeve, not a box) for $5.00 –five 33-gallon bags or ten 15-gallon bags. Only rubbish placed in these special color and labeled bags will be collected. Waste not in an approved Brunswick bag or loose in rubbish cans will not be collected.

Don’t Get Green Tagged!
Use the Brunswick Bag!

If you don’t use the Brunswick bag your trash will be tagged and left curbside. Please do your part and use the approved bags. Thank you!

Rubbish Collection Facts

  • You may still use your existing trash can (max size/weight 32 gallons/40 pounds) providing all rubbish put in the can is placed in Brunswick bags.
  • If you wish, you may use a regular trash bag and then put that bag inside a special Brunswick bag. You do not need to double-bag like this but several residents have asked us if it is okay to do this.
  • Each large bag (33 gallons) should contain no more than 35 pounds of waste. Each small bag (15 gallons) should contain no more that 20 pounds of waste.
  • Curbside collection remains only for weekly household trash. Appliances, carpet, furniture, bulky items, leaves, brush, remodeling debris, old computers, etc. must be brought to the landfill for disposal. Even if any such items do fit in a Brunswick bag, they will not be collected curbside. Residents are also still limited to putting curbside no more than four 32-gallon containers of rubbish per week.
  • If you are currently living in a condo complex that is serviced by the Town’s rubbish collector and the complex has containers (dumpsters) you will still need to put your rubbish in a Brunswick bag and then in the container.
  • The two Brunswick bag sizes are for the convenience of our residents; you may use either or both sizes as best suits your needs.
  • The Brunswick bags will only be available for purchase at local stores and the Town will not have any bags for sale at Town offices.
  • Universal Waste is not acceptable for rubbish collection or recycling. Universal Waste refers to any item containing mercury, such as TVs, computer monitors (CRT type), fluorescent light bulbs, mercury thermometers and thermostats containing a mercury vial. Universal waste is accepted at our landfill from Brunswick residents. Please keep universal waste items separate from other waste items and handle them carefully to avoid breakage.
