Curbside Collection Reminders during COVID-19 Pandemic

North Cowichan continues to provide curbside collection as an essential service during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we need resident's help to keep our Refuse Packer Operators safe. We ask that you keep a distance of at least 2 metres from operators, and properly contain garbage materials as outlined below:

  • Garbage items must be in securely tied garbage bags, set out in a bin, placed in its regular collection area
  • Personal hygiene products, used tissues, cleaning cloths, face masks, gloves, sanitary wipes (even those flushable or compostable), must be bagged and placed in your garbage bin
  • If someone in your household is sick, please double-bag all personal waste, securely tie all bags, and dispose in your regular residential garbage
