Region-wide Green Bin Program
Weekly green bin food and kitchen waste collection is underway for all single family homes in Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Lantzville, City of Nanaimo and in Regional District of Nanaimo Electoral Areas. Since the Green Bin Program started in 2010, the average household has diverted almost 2.5 kilograms of food and kitchen waste per week. Instead of going to the landfill and generating greenhouse gases, organic material is transformed into soil enhancing compost.
Please keep your green bin material contaminant-free
- Line your containers with newspaper, paper bags or certified compostable bags or place your scraps in loose.
- No plastic bags, plastic containers, Styrofoam, metal or glass in the green bin.
