  1. Type and model of current garbage container
  2. Photo of current garbage container (if deemed necessary)

Owners of approved 360-litre garbage containers will be eligible to receive 20 free waste collection stickers that can be affixed to additional bags of garbage or yard waste.  To obtain approval of your 360-litre garbage container, please contact 506.625.7096 or email garbagecontainer@miramichi.org.

Additionally, bags and yard waste will be collected if approved stickers are affixed.  A sticker can be purchased for $2.00 at City Hall, Miramichi Police Station, and the Public Works Office at 94 General Manson Way.  Stickers will become available on or before January 10th, 2022.
