You will find under the Solid Waste section (click on the tab at the top of the page), many information about our services.
The Northwest Regional Service Commission (NWRSC) Solid Waste Service (former COGERNO) operates a sanitary landfill site located in Rivière-Verte in northwestern New Brunswick. Its mandate is to provide sound solid waste management. Concurrently, this service manages many recycling programs and builds on educating and promoting awareness within the school districts and the community.
Taxpayers are paying for the management of their household wastes. This cost is billed to the municipalities and LSDs based on the amount per tonne of waste delivered. Afterwards, the cost is distributed and collected through the property tax system.
