Rural Roadside Garbage and Recycling Collection

Alternate Approval Process Set for June/July 2021

The Comox Valley Regional District is considering the introduction of rural roadside garbage and recycling collection services in 11 neighbourhoods throughout Electoral Areas A, B and C. Responses to a survey in summer/fall 2020 showed support in many areas, and since then, the CVRD has completed assessment and planning for a proposed service.

An Alternate Approval Process (AAP) will be used to seek elector support for the new service, which is estimated to cost $150-250/year. The AAP will be held in June/July and more information will be mailed to households in April. Updates will be shared here as well – including details about the service area boundaries, eligible exemptions and details of the service (amount of pick up, etc.). Sign up for news updates in the right hand menu.

Please note: Royston, Minto Road area, Forbidden Plateau Road, Mount Washington, Denman and Hornby Islands are not included in this proposed new service.

More Information.

  1. See the staff report summarizing the fall/winter survey results and the feasibility review here.
  2. Survey results by neighbourhood are also available at comoxvalleyrd.ca/ruralroadsidecollection.
