Important Information to keep Garbage Collection running smoothly during COVID-19 Crisis -
As COVID-19 continues to impact services across the community it’s important to keep garbage collection and waste management running smoothly. Garbage collection is considered an essential service and the RDCO Waste Reduction Office and its member municipalities are working to ensure the least amount of disruption to service over the coming weeks and months.
In order to reduce the strain on all waste management services residents are asked to note the following important reminders and changes:
As of March 25, 2020, the following will be suspended at this time to ensure garbage collection can continue smoothly:
- Tag-a-Bags for extra garbage will no longer be accepted
- Cart upgrades and change outs will be suspended at this time. Carts for new homes, replacements for broken carts or missing carts will still continue. Please contact the waste hauler at 250-868-3211 for broken or missing carts.
- Cash will no longer be accepted as payment at the Westside Transfer Station in West Kelowna or at the Glenmore Landfill in Kelowna.
- To stay up to date, download the Recycle Coach app, or visit rdco.com/recycle
