Rural Roadside Garbage and Recycling Collection

Next Steps for Rural Garbage Collection Approved

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 2 Public Consultation to Begin in 2021

On Nov. 16, Electoral Area Directors approved the next steps of consultation for 11 neighbourhoods that expressed interest in the implementation of a roadside garbage and recycling collection service, and that meet technical requirements for service delivery. The CVRD Board will consider the EASC recommendation for ratification at their next meeting, scheduled to take place November 24.

  2. Survey results by neighbourhood are also available at comoxvalleyrd.ca/ruralroadsidecollection.
