Courtenay's Student Ambassador Program is Back

May 19, 2022

The City of Courtenay’s student ambassador program is back after a two-year hiatus and will be visiting households in the city to share helpful information about recycling, water conservation and more. Our ambassadors Ayla and Richard will be going door-to-door in Courtenay neighbourhoods as well as at public city events like Courtenay’s Canada Day celebrations

This year they will be focusing on reducing curbside contaminants in recycling bins as well as handing out complimentary toilet leak test tablets. The ambassadors will be conducting visual curbside audits of recycling bins to identify common contaminants.  They will also be available to assist residents in finding out what can be recycled both curbside and at drop off locations, through the “Courtenay Collects” waste collection app and through the “Waste Wizard” available on our recycling & garbage page.
