Rural Roadside Garbage and Recycling Collection

Throw in Your Thoughts on Garbage Collection

The Comox Valley Regional District is considering the introduction of rural roadside garbage and recycling collection services in Electoral Areas A, B and C. As a preliminary step, the CVRD is engaging with homeowners and residents in the community about their degree of interest. A program would be pursued only in areas where there is community support and if technical and operational requirements can be met.

Please note: Mount Washington, Denman and Hornby Islands are not included in this review.

Phase 1: Public Engagement – Survey Complete

We asked residents and homeowners whether they’re interested in a new garbage/recycling collection service in the electoral area where they live. Thank you to all that completed the survey and shared your thoughts. Through the fall months, staff will review the results of this feedback to understand where neighbourhoods have expressed interest. The results will be provided to electoral area directors for consideration of next steps – please watch here for updates.
