Note:
Large trucks require access to the dock in order to facilitate the placement and removal of waste bins.  The movement of additional vehicles at the dockside presents a safety hazard to staff and the public.  Large item days at the Pointe au Baril Wharf are therefore intended for those arriving by boat only
 

 
The date and time of a 2020 curbside large item pickup has not yet been scheduled for the Skerryvore subdivision.  The date and time will be posted in early spring.
