Schedule & Collection Zones

The City of Courtenay’s solid waste collection service is aimed at reducing the volume of landfill waste by diverting reclaimable materials at the curb. Curbside collection includes garbage, recycling, and yard waste.

Households are permitted one (1) garbage container per week.

**Please place garbage, yard waste and recycling out by 8:00 a.m. on collection days.**

Add-A-Day Calendar

As the regional landfill operated by Comox Strathcona Waste Management is closed on statutory holidays, there is no curbside collection on those days.

With the “Add-A-Day” collection calendar, curbside pickup in each of the five collection zones shifts by one weekday after every statutory holiday throughout the year.
