FREDERICTON (CNB) - The following is released by River Watch 2008 and the Department of Public Safety's New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization on Thursday, June 5.

Dates for garbage collection for residents affected by recent flooding in the southern regions have been extended for two weeks.

Regular waste collection contractors will do special collections for flood-related waste in local service districts. Items should be placed at the roadside.

Waste includes appliances (for safety, remove doors and covers), furniture, carpeting, insulation, paper products, etc. Small loose items should be bagged or boxed.

Hazardous materials (that is, petroleum and propane tanks, chemical containers, dead animal carcasses, etc.) will not be accepted. Avoid contact with any hazardous material.

For information on disposing of hazardous materials, contact a regional office of the Department of Environment.

Regular household waste will be collected as usual, and should be placed separately from flood-related items.
