Information on sandbag disposalThe Department of Environment and Local Government recommends that sandbags believed to be contaminated during flooding be disposed of via garbage pickups or at a regional landfill. If people choose to make use of the sand, they are advised not to use it in playgrounds, sandboxes or other areas where there might be prolonged direct human exposure.
People are reminded they should wash their hands with soap and warm water after contacting floodwaters or handling items that have been in contact with floodwaters. An alteration permit is required for any work within 30 metres of a watercourse or regulated wetland, this includes the dumping of sand. Used sandbags that have been emptied should not be reused and can be disposed of during flood debris pickups or at landfills. Unused empty sandbags should be stored in a dry place, away from the sun and elements. If a property owner is not able to remove the sand bags, they should contact the Department of Environment and Local Government at 1-833-824-6113 to make arrangements for their removal and disposal. People are advised to contact one of the department’s regional offices for more information if the sandbags are contaminated (by oil, odour, etc.). Saint John Region, 506-658-2558
