Non-Flushable Items

We are reminding residents, especially at this time to THINK BEFORE YOU FLUSH.
Non flushable items include: hygiene wipes, baby wipes, napkins and paper towels. Only things which should be flushed are human waste and toilet paper. Everything else should be disposed of in the regular garbage.
 
Non-flushable items deposited in the toilet and grease dumped in the sink is the leading cause of blockages in the homeowners plumbing systems and municipal wastewater collection systems.
 
Despite claims on wipe packaging that they are flushable, they are not. They cause a tremendous amount of resources to be used and can cause a tremendous amount of damage through sewer backups!
 
Thank you for your co-operation!
Public Works Supervisor
Craig Dixon

Residential Spring Clean-up

The Village of Sussex Corner Spring Clean-Up is scheduled for May 14th, 2020. Please check our Website and Facebook page for any updates that may delay this program due to Covid-19 guidelines.

Water and Sewer Billing Update

We are currently in an unprecedented situation with the Covid-19 pandemic affecting our province that has caused the New Brunswick government to declare a state of emergency.
 
Under these measures there are parameters in place that need to be followed, such as social distancing. Many businesses have had to temporarily close and these closures have changed the financial situation for many residents.
 
As a result of the current situation, Mayor Stackhouse and council have agreed to redistribute the April bill for water and sewer onto the future bills that will be issued in July and October.
 
This would mean that with the 2.5% discount the July bill will total $190.13 and the October bill will total $190.12.
For peace of mind, those wishing to pay the April total of $126.75 onto their water and sewer account can do so in April, but this will be by e-transfer only. Residents that have already set up payments by Post Dated Cheques can continue with this payment method or contact us if you would like to make other arrangements.
 
We hope this adjustment meets with your approval since your health and safety is important to all of us!
 
Please continue to follow the guidelines being issues by public health and public safety. Stay informed by visiting https://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en.html on a daily basis.
 
Sussex Corner Mayor & Council
