Beyond Recycling

THE FUTURE OF CURBSIDE COLLECTION IN THE RDN

In 2002, the Regional District of Nanaimo Board (RDN) adopted the Zero Waste Plan as the waste management strategy. This plan outlines the key components to achieve Zero Waste through waste reduction, reuse, recycling, redesign, composting and other actions in accordance with the Zero Waste Hierarchy. In July 2018, the RDN Board adopted a new target to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill by 90% by 2029, which equates to an average of 109 kg of garbage per capita per year.

HAVE YOUR SAY!

We want to hear from you! We are seeking resident feedback -- from RDN Curbside Collection Service customers -- on the current state of service delivery and what you would like to see in the future curbside contract. This also serves as a great opportunity to look at the amount of waste we generate in our households and continue to work together to divert as much waste as possible to help achieve 90% diversion by 2028. The consultation process runs between August to September 2018, and will include an online survey.

Your feedback will be used to help influence the future of curbside collection of residential waste, recycling and organics.

NEXT STEPS

We will compile all feedback from the online survey and focus groups, and make a recommendation to the Board for the future curbside collection contract. The feedback summary will be available in Winter 2018.
