In an effort to keep hazardous chemicals out of our landfills the Nova Scotia government has banned electronics and batteries from regular garbage. Instead electronics (recyclable) and batteries need to be dropped off depots across the province. The closest location to Annapolis Royal is the Lawrencetown Western Management Centre, 343 Elliott Road, 1–877–927–8300.
A handy Valley Waste calendar which contains waste management information can be picked up at Town Hall.
The Town offers a Leaf and Yard Waste drop-off for residents only, located at Public Works, 144 Victoria Street. A key for the site can be obtained from Town Hall. The fee for the key is $25, non-refundable. A replacement key can be obtained for $5. If you have an old key, you may exchange it for a new key at no cost. While this service is offered, residents are encouraged to utilize Valley Waste’s yard waste services.
