The third add-a-day collection moves to Thursday, May 26, 2022 after the May long weekend holiday. Solid waste will continue to be collected on Thursdays until the next statutory holiday in July.
The Village has switched to the “add-a-day” system for curbside solid waste collection, to get in step with other communities in the Comox Valley.
While residents may find the system takes some effort to get used to, it is expected it will help improve the collection service. This system allows the collection contractor to accommodate closure days at the waste management centre, to align collection days in other communities, and to make for more effective allocation of labour and resources to all communities in the region.
The Village recognizes the challenges solid waste collection has posed to residents and businesses over the past few years due to collector changes and labour shortages. By working cooperatively with other regional local governments, the Village hopes that the service will improve.
