Cumberland Joint Services Management Authority

Cumberland Joint Services Management Authority (CJSMA) is a board authority made up of the five municipal units in Cumberland County: the Towns of Amherst, Oxford, Parrsboro and Springhill, and the Municipality of the County of Cumberland. Each municipal unit assigns two representatives to the Board. Additionally, a Board Chair is appointed annually by a member unit on a rotating basis.

CJSMA is responsible for operating the solid waste facilities located at Little Forks. This includes ensuring that the Provincial Solid Waste Regulations, including disposal bans, are followed. We also provide public education, information and assistance on solid waste programs in Cumberland County.

The individual municipal units implement and administer their own solid waste programs, with public assistance and education efforts provided by CJSMA.

Collection Schedules for each of the municipal units are available here.
