Medical Exemption Program


The Solid Waste Department offers a medical exemption to households who may need to use more than one dark garbage bag per week for the disposal of materials related to a medical circumstance. The use of additional dark bags is for materials related to the medical condition only. Any additional garbage un-related to the household’s medical circumstance should be disposed of in clear garbage bags.


To learn more information on acquiring a medical exemption for your household, please contact the Waste Management Hotline at (902)567-1337. Please remember, to be eligible for a medical exemption, your household must be participating in CBRM’s Blue Bag and Green Cart Collection Programs.
