Comox Strathcona Waste Management (CSWM)
CSWM is responsible for two regional waste management centres that serve the Comox Valley and Campbell River, as well as a range of transfer stations and smaller waste-handling and recycling facilities for the electoral areas of the Comox Valley Regional District and the Strathcona Regional District. The CSWM service manages over 100,000 tonnes of waste and recycled material and oversees a number of diversion and education programs.
The Comox Valley Regional District approved the 2012 Solid Waste Management Plan in September 2012.

Cumberland Host Community Agreement
In February 2013, the Comox Strathcona Waste Management Service and the Village of Cumberland have developed a mutually beneficial agreement that would allow for an expanded engineered landfill at the Comox Valley Waste Management Centre.
The host community benefit agreement contains two key provisions:
- to pay the Village of Cumberland a host community rate fee of $300,000 per year for 20 years, and
- to provide a maximum of $3 million to fund the design and construction of a one-time upgrade to the Cumberland Road/Bevan Road corridor.
