Curbside Collection Service Interruptions

Please be advised, due to severe weather conditions and safety concerns for both residents and Municipal Staff, all curbside collection is CANCELLED January 15, 2020.


Garbage missed on Wednesday, January 15 will be picked up on Wednesday, January 22 (along with your recycling and organics). Customers on this route (Brown A) will be permitted to put ONE additional garbage can out on this day only to make up for the extension in collection time.

Organics missed on Wednesday, January 15 will be picked up on your next regular organics day - Wednesday, January 22.


Recycling in North Cowichan is picked up by a contractor, Waste Connections. 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 Waste Connections with questions at 250.715.0955

We thank everyone for their patience
