Hazardous Materials in Garbage Collection


Residents are reminded that hazardous materials, such as waste oil/motor oil and other such materials that cause many environmental issues, are not permitted in the regular residential garbage collection and must be disposed of by other means. Disposing of such items in your regular garbage poses a safety issue for the sanitation workers (could spray when compacted) and could cause major interruptions/delays to the collection service in your area.

Please check with some of the local service stations to determine which ones will recycle your used oil.

Thank you for your co-operation and protection of our environment.

Non-Permitted Businesses


All businesses operating within the Town of Marystown’s planning area (including Beau Bois, Spanish Room, Jean de Baie and Rock Harbour) are required to have a permit to operate.  Please refer to the Town’s website at www.townofmarystown.ca for a copy of the Town’s Development Regulations and Municipal Plan as well as the Town’s Tax Structure as it relates to permit fees.

By making application to the Town to operate a business, it ensures that the business is in compliance with zoning bylaws for a specific location and ensures that other regulations (public health and safety, etc.) are addressed.  It also ensures a fair environment for all members of the business community.

Failure to obtain the proper permits will result in the issuance of a Stop Work Order.  Anyone wishing to advise the Town of a business that is operating without a proper permit may do so anonymously by calling Alje Mitchell, Director of Planning & Development Control at 279-1661 ext. 258 or emailing amitchell@townofmarystown.ca.

The Town's recreational facilities lend a popular outdoor setting for exercise and recreational activities and often attract large numbers of people, particularly families with children.

Please support our vision of providing a healthy environment and refrain from smoking at the Town's facilities, and on the grounds, at all times.

Marine Industrial Park

The Town of Marystown has developed a new Marine Industrial Park in the Power’s Cove area, boasting 15 large fully-serviced lots (lots can be subdivided to meet individual needs) with plans for a laydown area and 1,000 foot wharf.  Because of its ideal location – a well-sheltered, ice-free, deepwater harbour - this Marine Industrial Park is well-suited to take advantage of the opportunities in the supply and service sector, specifically oil/gas, fabrication and manufacturing.

A Marketing Plan is now being developed to hilight the attributes and benefits of the park.  This information will be posted via a web link once it is available.

For more information on the Marine Industrial Park or to view a lot, please contact the CAO at 709-279-1661, ext. 227 or email info@townofmarystown.ca.
