Here's a Q&A sheet from CNWM prepared for their new policy on collection from garbage boxes - we think it will answer many of the questions put forward in recent days. This policy was implemented September 1, 2020 and covers all communities, with some 18,000 residents, served by CNWM including Gander, Bishop's Falls, Point Leamington, and Peterview.

NEW BULK GARBAGE  -  CURBSIDE PICKUP SERVICE

The Town of Botwood will be piloting a new curbside bulk garbage pickup service this summer.  The service is intended to help residents of Botwood dispose of bulk household items. In addition, the town will be establishing a new drop off site for grass cuttings.  The program will run on a trial basis throughout the summer beginning on Wednesday, July 29, 2020.
This service is not meant for large volumes of bulk waste. Construction, renovation and demolition materials (such as windows, door and wooden flooring) will not be picked up and these materials are to be taken to the Central NL Waste Management facilities.  Rather, the program is intended to accommodate infrequent, low volume, difficult to dispose of items. The total weight of the bulk items for pickup cannot exceed 100 kg (220 lbs.) per call.  As well items must be capable to be hand loaded by two people.
There are limits on what items can be accepted - over weight, bundling, size etc.  This pilot project is intended to help residents dispose of bulky items not accommodated by our weekly household waste pickup. 
Items that can be collected at the curbside pickup by town staff are:
 Metals - such as old BBQs (no propane tanks), hot water tanks, washers, dryers, stoves, refrigerators (freon removed)
 Furniture - maximum two pieces
 Table and Chairs set, coffee and end tables
 Carpet and vinyl flooring
 Large cardboard boxes such as an appliance box
Please note: wood, construction, renovation and demolition materials will not be accepted. 
HOW THE SERVICE WORKS —
BULK ITEMS
This service is by appointment only.  Residents must call the Town Hall at 257-2839 before noon on Monday to request to have their waste picked up on the assigned Wednesday. Town staff will ask about the item(s) and confirm the date.  There will be limited number of pickup appointments. The goal is to offer the service twice monthly (depending upon demand).  Residents will be required to have their items to the curb by 8:00 a.m. on the confirmed collection date. Remember the total weight of the bulk pickup items is 100 kg (220 lbs.) per call.
All households will be eligible for up to two bulk pickup appointments annually.  A $25 fee will apply to the third or additional request.
GRASS CUTTINGS
Grass cuttings can be dropped off at the designated marked area at the Public Works Depot parking lot on Fernwood Drive.  Grass cuttings MUST be in clear plastic bags with a maximum weight of 18 kg (40 lbs.) a  bag.​​

EMERGENCY WATER CONSERVATION NOTICE
2:30 p.m. July 8, 2020 
All residents of Botwood, Peterview, and Northern Arm, are advised that the emergency water conservation order dated June 25th remains in effect.  Just after noon today (July 8th) a new break occurred on our main line.  We believe we can isolate this break to enable us to maintain water.
Residents are asked to continue conserving water.  Until further notice water usage should be limited to essential needs only – drinking, cooking, washing, etc. 
The following activities should cease immediately –
Watering of lawns, gardens, flower beds, etc.
Filling of swimming pools, backyard splash pads/sprinklers, etc.
Washing vehicles, recreation equipment, ATVs, etc.
All other non-essential water uses.
Over the past week the water level in our storage tank has increased slightly.  Residents are asked to continue conserving water for emergency and public protection purposes.
Crews continue to work diligently to identify the previous leak and resolve issues in a timely manner – we have been able to determine the leak is in a 500m section near the old tank site.
Again, we anticipate being able to maintain service to all residents during this event. However, some streets or neighbourhoods may lose service for short periods of time and residents may experience low pressure and discolouration.
The co-operation of all residents with this matter is appreciated. We will continue to keep residents informed in a timely manner until this matter is resolved. Again, please limit your usage of water to essential purposes only until advised otherwise.​
