Waste Collection

The City of Courtenay provides residential curbside collection for garbage, recycling, and organics. The City is committed to reducing the volume of waste sent to the Comox Strathcona Waste Management (CSWM) landfill by diverting collected materials through the collection of recycling and yard waste. 

Important Changes coming to Residential Curbside Collection:

  • January 2023 - Food waste collection can be co-mingled with organics and overall yard waste volumes will be limited to 360 litres per residence.
  • January 2024 - Automated curbside collection will commence. Garbage collection will change from weekly collection to biweekly collection.
