Information for the public

The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay would like to remind residents that improper disposal of household materials and abrasive cleaning products can cause severe issues with the Municipal Sewage System.

The town has recently experienced issues with the overflow of sewer lift stations due to improper disposal of materials.

The following items belong in the Garbage. Please do NOT Flush:

Baby wipes
Cleaning wipes
Cigarettes, cigars
Colostomy bags
Combs, brushes or razors
Condoms & other contraceptives
Cotton balls or swabs
Deep fryer oil
Dental floss
Disposable diapers
Food waste
Kitty litter
Oil & grease
Paper towels
Rags, cloths (including Swiffer Sweeper cloths)
Sanitary pads and tampons
Tights and pantyhose

The sewage system is also NOT the place for Household Hazardous Waste. The Municipal Landfill now has a depot where residents can properly dispose of Household Hazardous Waste materials

The town would like to thank residents for their co-operation. For further information, please contact:
