RDN recycling used collection containers

Latest Oceanside News

Residents of the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) can recycle their used collection containers by drop off or pickup until Nov. 30.

Clean collection bins can be put out for curbside pickup between Nov. 17 and 28, the day after their regularly scheduled collection day.

“We heard and are responding to residents’ requests for a region-wide collection and recycling of the used waste containers,” said Ian Thorpe, chair of the RDN. “This is another great initiative to keep recyclables out of the region’s landfill and achieve our ultimate goal of 90 per cent waste diversion.”

Clean, used collection containers can also be dropped off free of charge at the Church Road Transfer Station in Parksville and the regional landfill in Nanaimo.

Any residents who want to repurpose the used containers for animal feed or storage, for example, are welcome to pick them up at the landfill or transfer station on a first-come, first-served basis, according to the RDN.

Residents can visit rdn.bc.ca/curbside-collection-schedules to confirm their collection day.
