Solid Waste Community Litter Collection Program

In May 2018, Region of Queens Municipality’s Council approved a new program to support Queens County’s non-profit organizations who conduct highway litter clean ups.  In each of  the Municipality's 2018 - 2019, 2019 - 2020, and 2020 - 2021 budgets, $3,000 has been included for this purpose, and  Region of Queens will collect and dispose of the collected waste from approved clean ups.  Groups may apply to clean up a portion of  a highway in their community and be granted $100 per kilometre for both sides of the highway, once per year for a maximum of 3 kilometres in a location authorized by Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (NSTIR).
