Together with Southeast Eco360, the KRSC is proud to present the Mobile Eco-Depot program. This FREE service will allow residents to dispose of bulky, hazardous, construction, and other types of waste at a location near them.
**This program is an improvement to the hazardous waste collection program that was taking place in our region four (4) times a year**

How does it work?
Our partners at Southeast Eco360 will bring containers and bins to the selected location. They will also put in place a clear and safe path to follow with your vehicle to orderly drop your items.
While there will be employees available to help you get rid of your items in a timely manner, you might be resquested to help them to ensure a constant flow of circulation and reduce waiting lines. Additionally, residents are asked to have their loads sorted and separated by material type for easy unloading.
What does it cost?
This service is completely free.
Who can use it?
Residents of the Kent region are welcome at any Mobile Eco-Depot event, not just the one closest to them or in their community.
This service is for residential customers only. Commercial waste or any regular curbside household waste will not be accepted.
Is there a limit of items I can bring?
You can bring up to a 1/2 tonne truck and utility trailer load.
Some items also have some restrictions like appliances, tires, lobster traps, etc. Please refer yourself to the list of accepted items to get more information on these limitations.
Will it affect my bulky waste collection at the curb?
No. This is an aditional program to help residents getting rid of many items that we do not collect all year long. We will still offer three (3) bulky waste collection day per year, directly at your curb.*
*The three collection day per year only applies in the region whre the Kent RSC manages the collection contracts. That number might be different if you live in the municipalities of Bouctouche & Saint-Antoine or in the First Nations of Elsipogtog and Indian Island.
What if I missed the Eco-Depot in my area?
There will be eight (8) events per year in Kent County, mostly in our municipalities. Residents are welcome at any Mobile Eco-Depot event, not just the one closest to them or in their community.
Ex: You live in Galloway but missed the event in Richibucto. You are more than welcome to bring us your material in any other location, like Bass River, Bouctouche, Saint-Louis-de-Kent, or even Rogersville if you’re willing to drive there.
