Automated Curbside Collection


THE NEW AUTOMATED CURBSIDE COLLECTION SERVICE IS COMING FALL 2020!

The RDN Board has voted to transition to an automated curbside collection service at the end of the current manual service collection contract. The new service will provide RDN residents (except City of Nanaimo residents who already have this great service) with the following:

  1. Improved service offerings
    • Customizable collection cart sizes to best suit your household needs
    • No weight restrictions
    • Improved worker health and safety
    • Improved neighbourhood esthetics by keeping materials contained
    • Reduced human-wildlife interactions
  2. Easy to roll carts with attached lids for convenient and efficient disposal of recyclables, food waste and garbage
  3. Real-time information for better customer service

PICK YOUR CART SIZES!

We want to hear from you! You have a choice of cart sizes to best suit your household's disposal needs. We are seeking resident feedback -- from RDN Curbside Collection Service customers -- on your cart size preferences so that you will be delivered your desired cart sizes based on your household needs.

The online questionnaire will be open between September 23, 2019 to December 31, 2019.

If you do not provide your preference by the deadline, you will be provided a default set of carts (240L recycling, 100L food waste and 100L garbage).


NEXT STEPS

We will compile all feedback from the online questionnaire to place the cart order. In summer 2020, each RDN residential household (except City of Nanaimo residents) will receive a set of wheeled carts of your preferred cart sizes for recyclables and garbage, and a standard food waste cart. An information package outlining the details of the service will accompany the cart delivery.

The new automated curbside collection service will begin October 2020!
