Curbside Collection Make-Up

If your curbside collection was not picked up the week of February 11 due to the extensive snowfall, here is what you can expect:


  • If your garbage was missed on Monday, Feb. 11, it will be picked up on Tuesday, Feb. 19
  • If your garbage was missed on Tuesday, Feb. 12, it will be picked up on Wednesday, Feb. 20

Please do not put extra garbage bins out - stay within the one container, 35lb limit. We appreciate your understanding!

Recycling in North Cowichan is picked up by a contractor. Unfortunately, they do not have enough trucks to do extra pick-ups for recycling that has been missed due to the snow. Recycling that was missed will be picked up on your next scheduled recycling day and as always, there is no limit on how much recycling you can put out. You can contact the Recycling Contractor with questions at 250-715-0955. We thank everyone for their patience!

Please note: all collection days the week of February 18 shift by one day, due to the Family Day holiday on Monday, Feb 18.
