Gros Morne Recycling Depot
Please be advised that the Rocky Harbour Green Depot will resume operations on Tuesday, May 12, 2020.  Our hours of operation will be 1:00-6:00 pm, Tuesday thru Friday and 1:00-5:00 pm on Saturday.

Upon reopening, all Green Depot locations across the province will move to an Xpress only model of service and implement several precautions to ensure physical distancing and safety of staff. Traditional counter service, where a customer waits for their order to be counted followed by their cash payment, is suspended until Newfoundland and Labrador enters COVID-19 Alert Level 3.

Xpress is an account-based system available at all Green Depots that allows customers to quickly drop off beverage containers and claim their refund later. Customers who do not have an Xpress account will need to register prior to visiting a Green Depot.

For more information, including how to register for Xpress and operational details for each Green Depot, visit

Please note that dates for reopening and hours of operation may vary between other Green Depots across the province.

Recycling Depot Guidelines

1. All bottles are to have caps removed prior to drop off. Any bottles with cap still attached will be returned to the customer.

2. To avoid congestion at the depot, unless prior arrangements have been made with the staff, each customer is limited to 10 bags per drop off. Anything above will not be accepted at that time.

3. Groups wishing to hold a recycling drive must notify the depot 2 weeks prior to make sure they can accommodate a large amount of recyclables.

Safety During Power Outages

During extended outages, Hydro asks customers to please implement measures to stay safe. Safety information can be found at Here's tips for staying safe during a power outage:

·    Never go near or touch a fallen power line.

·    Don't use camp stoves or barbecues indoors as they produce hazardous fumes.

·    Turn thermostats to the lowest setting or switch them off; and keep only one light on to let you know when power has been restored.

·    Do not plug a portable generator into the wiring system of a home or building. This action could result in serious injury to utility workers.

·    Listen to the radio.

·    Stay warm with blankets and wearing layers.

·    Spend some quiet, quality time with friends and family while crews work to safely restore power.
