Residential garbage within the Village of Doaktown is regularly collected every second Monday (including holidays, unless otherwise advised) by Joe’s Garbage Pick-Up Ltd.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Councillor Paige Storey at 506-625-1575, Shelly Williams at 506-624-8205 or call the Doaktown Municipal Office at 506-365-7970.

All residents are asked to place their bagged garbage within a reasonable distance of the curb in a location that provides the garbage removal personnel with easy access. Please have your garbage to curbside by 7 am. Please note that neither the Village of Doaktown nor their contractor is responsible for garbage pick-up when the refuse is not easily accessible because of snow, ice or other conditions, nor are they responsible for cleaning up any garbage that has been broken open. If the garbage is not placed in a secure container, residents will be responsible for keeping the area free of debris.

It is generally expected that weekly garbage generation for a normal household will not exceed four standard-size bags with no one bag weighing over 40 pounds.

Non-residential garbage (refuse generated by businesses, service groups, churches or other organizations) is not included in the Village’s contract with Joe's Garbage Pick-Up Ltd. and is therefore the responsibility of the owner or operator.  Arrangements for the removal of this refuse can be made with any of the following:  Joe’s Garbage Pick-Up Limited (506-622-8021), Waste Management (506-451-0001), or any other approved waste disposal company.

Municipal Clean-Up Days:  To accommodate excess refuse, the Village contractor is obligated to provide for two general clean-up days per year.  In 2021, those dates have been scheduled for May 29 and October 16.  On those two occasions, the following items can be put out for collection:  yard waste (boxed, bagged or tied in 3′ length bundles); stoves, barbecues, bicycles, beds, mattresses, furniture, etc.  Articles that will not be accepted under any circumstances include automobile or snowmobile parts, paint, tires, liquids, batteries, etc.
